How long does fresh deli meat last and how can you tell if it has gone bad? 

The shelf life of fresh deli meat can vary depending on the type of meat you are buying. For example, roast beef will typically last for about 1-2 days in the refrigerator, while turkey and ham may last up to 3-5 days. To determine if your deli meats have gone bad, look closely at their color and texture. If they have changed in color or appear slimy or moldy, it is definitely time to toss them out and buy new ones. 

What are some tips for storing fresh deli meat to make it last as long as possible?

One of the best tips for storing fresh deli meat is to tightly wrap it in plastic or place it in a resealable container. This will help prevent air exposure, which can cause the meat to degrade faster and go bad more quickly. Additionally, make sure to always store your deli meats in the coldest part of your refrigerator, ideally in the back where it is cold. 

What are some delicious recipes that you can make with fresh deli meat?
