Holy cow . I'm up at my friends cabin on my annual fishing trip . Just finished eating dinner and I am cleaning up .
I asked if the canned beets needed to be refrigerated . He said ," no " .
Then later on I asked . "What about other foods you prepare or open and then leave out . Such as pickles ,jams , jellies , beets , canned peaches . Even chili ,chicken , and pork , to many to mention .
He said "If you heated it, it's OK . Ambient outside temp 42-54 F . Wow . Still alive . Approaching 70 . It must be the magic house . Maybe we are all wrong .
