Tips for Storing Dips
- Airtight containers are essential for storing dips in the fridge. Our favorite containers are glass with locking lids as they are easy to stack and wash beautifully in the dishwasher. Plus, you never have to worry about glass being food safe.
- If you don’t have an airtight container, use plastic wrap to tightly covered the bowl or dish the dip is stored in. Be aware that this may reduce the shelf life of the dip. Before serving, give the dip a good stir and check for signs of spoilage.
