Store Sour Cream Upside Down

Store your sour cream and cottage cheese containers upside down in the refrigerator. It will be good long past the expiration date. I've used mine long after the date.

I've used mine long after the expiration date and have not stored it upside down. I'm curious why upside down?

I don't know about using it after the expiration date. As Rachel Ray says There is a reason for a date being put there.

Thank goodness to see this hint in print. I have told people in the past about this & they think I'm nuts!

It really does work and really prolongs "shelf" life of sour-cream & cottage cheese!

Totally works, I get sour cream for .19 or .29 a container , 10-20 containers at a time (using coupons of course). And I have gotten them to last 2 months past the date. Upside down really works! And cream cheese too.

Since Merlene's question hasn't been answered yet, I'll ask again: Does anyone know WHY storing the container upside down makes a difference? Thanks!

I have always read and heard that the only purpose of the expiration date on foods is that is when they are best by, not that they aren't safe to use.

After opening your sour cream, turn it upside down in the fridge to keep it from going bad so quickly. I tried it with cottage cheese, and this tip worked for it too!
