Household Tips

La ilaha illallah Muhammadur Rasulallah*'There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah "Assalamu Alalikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,""May the peace, the mercy, and the blessings of Allah be upon you.....Today, all good food is made lawful for you. The food of the people of the scripture (Jews & Christians) is LAWFUL (HALAL) for you......" 5:5

In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

* Store flour in an airtight container to prevent absorption or loss of moisture. Place large bags in a big covered container. In hot, humid weather, buy flour in small amounts and keep in the refrigerator or freezer. Flour stored in a warm place, is likely to become infested with insects.
* Keep whole wheat flour in the refrigerator or freezer the year around. Natural oils cause this flour to turn rancid quickly at room temperature.
* Flour absorbs odors. Do not store near soap powders, medicines or other items with strong
Storing Bread
* Bread keeps fresh if stored at room temperature in a cool, dry place. Refrigeration speeds staling. In hot, humid weather, however, bread kept for more than two or three days should be refrigerated to retard mold growth. Some whole wheat products have no preservatives added. Because of the fat content of whole wheat flour, these products can become stale quickly. Be sure to check for freshness at time of purchase. Store properly at home for maximum quality.
* Store brown-and-serve breads, English muffins and other high-moisture breads in the refrigerator.
* Keep hard-crust breads, such as French bread, at room temperature and use within one to two days of purchase. These breads are made with water rather than milk and dry out quickly.
* Most breads are packaged in moisture- and vapor-proof wraps (polyethylene bags) which are good for storage. Other containers used to store bread should be cleaned with a solution of baking soda and water rather than soap. The odor of soap can transfer to the bread. Do not reuse bread wrappers for food storage.
* For longer storage, freeze fresh bread. Freezing will not freshen bread. It just preserves freshness present at the time of freezing.
