Somehow (I'm still scratching my head wondering), I left the door to my fridge wide open last night and went maybe nine hours before finding out. I opened a soda bottle in there and my instant read thermometer read 55 degrees. Temp could have been a bit higher elsewhere in there. I think I know my course of action for most things (mostly keep a while). But:
1. I bought some large sea scallops yesterday. Could they really go south that fast? They were still partially frozen the evening before the incident. Is a sniff test meaningful?
2. I have four new jars of homemade Giardiniera (mixed veggies) in there, not canned for shelf-stability, but instead in about a 50/50 mixture of white vinegar and canola oil. Any experience out there with those sorts of things?
