    Freezing shop bought french sticks 13th Jun 05 at 2:59 PM
    I was wondering as husband came back with one from sainsburys for a whole 10p. It was reduced from 99p so it was a nice one.

    And said wonder if you can freeze them. Would have to be cut in half for us as we only have a fridge freezer.

    I suppose I could get one for that price and just try it anyway.

    Just thought I would ask you first as you seem to know everything (in a nice way that is)

    Many thanks in advance.

    Yours

    yes they do freeze!! my mum and dad regularly freeze half of one as they find a whole large one too much for one go....and its cheaper to buy one large than two small when they want.

    Don't see why not. I've frozen shop bought loaves before and they came out fine...never tried a french stick though.

    I will pop in to sainsburys tonight to see if they have any reduced and I will have a go.

    Not sure what I am going to wrap it in though as I don't have any bags big enough. Tin foil will have to do.

    Many thanks.

    i think my dad gets the largest food/freezer bags and cuts them into sizes that fit into the bags............not sure it would keep if only wrapped in foil etc as air could get in,maybe tight clingfilm would be ok?

    They freeze very well. although when defrosted are never as nice as when fresh, so i always pop them into a hot oven for a few minutes to crisp up before using.

    I often wrap one in cling wrap and freeze. They are not crusty once defrosted but you can revive them by poping into a warm oven for a few mins.

    Foil would be ideal, because when I use them from frozen, I brush a little milk over the outside and wrap in foil, pop in the oven for a few minutes. Revives the bread, so it tastes as fresh as it ever did.
