This is the last in a five-part series on keeping your groceries safe and sound.

Can you freeze that extra loaf of bread you baked? And did you know that you absolutely should freeze that new bag of flour you brought home for at least 48 hours before using or storing it? Flour almost always contains insect eggs, and freezing the flour will kill off any eggs before they hatch -- saving you from opening a bag of flour one day to bake cookies and being greeted by a colony of weevils.
