In high temperatures, cooked meals and fresh food such as meat, fruit or dairy products, will not stay fresh for very long. Food will quickly become unsafe to eat, often after just a few hours. Here are two simple ideas which help to keep food cool – and also covered and free from flies. They cost little to make and will keep food fresh for longer.
They work on the principle that as water evaporates or dries up in the heat, the temperature inside the container is lowered. Both methods need a continuous supply of clean water and should be kept in the shade.
