Power Outage - Try this helpful hint

Ever wondered if your food was still good after a power outage? I have heard of this great tip called the one cup tip. You put a cup of water in your freezer. Freeze it solid and then put a coin on top of it and leave it in your freezer. That way when you check your freezer you can tell if your food went completely bad and just refroze or if it stayed frozen during the outage.

If the coin has fallen to the bottom of the cup that means all the food defrosted and you should throw it out. But if the coin is either on the top or in the middle of the cup then your food may still be ok. It would also be a great idea to leave this in your freezer all the time and if you lose power for any reason you will have this tip to fall back on.  If you don't feel good about your food, just throw it out.
