Ever grab a prepackaged pile of cold cuts, only to be greeted with a less-than-appetizing film of slime?
There seems to be two kinds of slime in the lunch-meat world: the kind that accompanies bad smells and spoiled food, and the kind that comes from fresh, prepackaged cold cuts. The best way to curb this is to avoid keeping deli meats for more than four days and to not purchase those sold in vacuum-sealed packages. But, there's also a way to fight the slime that can creep up at home.
suggests, plastic wrap can rapidly lead to slimy meat, so when you bring it home, repackage it. Put it in any old airtight container or get a nice flat one specifically designed for deli meats.
