How Long Can You Safely Eat Christmas Leftovers?

December 27, 2019

Leftovers are the best part of the holiday season, but sadly, they don’t last forever.

Many foods that grace your holiday dinner table have a short life span.

If you want to avoid getting sick before you ring in the new year (starting 2020 with food poisoning is not ideal), you need to be careful when eating leftovers.

Thankfully, The Sun asked some professionals for pointers on how to preserve leftovers so that they’re safe and delicious.

Here are some rules to keep in mind when dealing with leftovers:
- The fridge and freezer are your best friend
- Expiration dates are there for a reason… follow them
- Make a new dish out of your leftovers
- Eat defrosted foods within 24 hours.
