    Freezing - Tips and Quick Questions thread 25th Oct 06 at 1:26 PM
    Added by Gingham Ribbon:

    We get a lot of quickfire questions about freezing, like this one, and I thought it would be a good idea to try to keep them all on one thread. So I've amended the name of this thread and any quick questions about freezing can be added to this one.

    You may find that you don't even need to ask. See:-
    The Complete Cooking Collection and then scroll down to "freezing" - it covers lots of different foods.

    Is it ok to freeze baked beans? :confused:

    Is it also ok to freeze curry sauce ?

    In addition to this - is it ok to use plastic freezer bags for runny stuff like this - as I don't have the space for boxes

    Sorry if this has been covered anywhere else but I'm not too sure what is ok to freeze and isn't

    many thanks

    RE-FREEZING - by far the most common question these days is "Can I refreeze...???"

    If you have defrosted something but want to freeze it again straight away (or after not using it all up) then refreezing is not advised.

    If you have "changed the state" of the product concerned. i.e. you have cooked it in a soup/pie/curry/roast/whatever... then yes, you can safely freeze it.

    Note that if you have made and frozen some soup from a previously frozen product (for example) and defrost this... then refreezing any leftover soup is not advised.

    TIP:- When freezing things, if it is at all possible (and sensible) divide it into portions first. That way you should seldom have "leftover" defrosted "stuff" that you now have to find something to do with.
