Full Answer

To maximize the amount of time tuna remains fresh, keep it in the coldest part of the refrigerator. Store it on the bottom shelf, as far away from the door as possible. If tuna is to be kept beyond a few days in the refrigerator, it should be moved to the freezer for long-term storage.

    How do you keep popcorn fresh?

    A:

    To maintain the freshness and crispness of popcorn, keep it in a glass jar. Make sure that this jar has an air-tight lid, as one does not want any oxygen hitting the popcorn. This creates a vacuum-fresh seal, which allows the popcorn to snap when someone eats it.
