Woman shows off huge food pantry – but leaves people fuming with ‘problem’

A woman has caused quite a debate online after sharing snaps of her enormous food pantry.

Inside the cupboard there was everything from tins, jars, seasoning, sauces and even grains.

But one thing that people couldn’t seem to shake off was the fact that her eggs were also in the shot.

Many asked why Candice, from Australia, would keep her eggs in the cupboard and not in the fridge.

Alongside the photo, she wrote: “Pantry organising day. It took seven years to get to this point.

“I got serious about healthy eating and slowly started learning how to make everything from scratch.

“We never eat out or buy lunches, so all of these ingredients do eventually get used.”

Some were amazed by the neatness of the cupboard, while others spotted a problem

Candice added: “I would advise if you want to organise your supplies, then you need to pull everything out, assess and re-organise.”

Although many of her friends and followers pointed out how tidy the pantry was, others were too busy looking at something else.

One wrote: “Maybe the egg cartons are empty, but eggs go off seven times quicker at room temperature compared to a fridge.”

Another added: “Now you just need to put the eggs in the fridge and get some Tupperware.”

A third commented: “Eggs in the pantry! This is NOT okay.”

According to a professional, fresh eggs store on the shelf for four weeks, while it’s six weeks in the fridge.

Meanwhile website EggInfo.co.uk claims it’s fine to store eggs in your food cupboard, as long as it doesn’t get too warm.

In fact, eggs should be kept at a steady temperature below 20C.

It added: “If you have a cool pantry that doesn’t heat up when the kitchen temperature rises, that’s fine for storing eggs.

“But a kitchen cupboard may seem a relatively constant environment, temperatures can still fluctuate when you’re cooking.

“Best practice is to store eggs in the fridge; that way the temperature is always at a constant and your eggs will be fresher!

“When you get around to using them, try to leave them out of the fridge for 30 minutes to bring them up to room temperature.”
