    Can I freeze cream? 24th Oct 05 at 11:50 AM
    I freeze milk sucessfully, but can I freeze cream?

    And what else can I freeze that's not obvious?

    I'm single so I find stuff goes off before I can use it, so if I can freeze things like cream, cheese etc then I can portion it up when I get home and use it as I need it, without waste.

    I'm thinking storecupboard/fridge type tihngs that would otherwise go off...

    Also, what about eggs? I never get through a box of six before they go baaad. I'm guessing it's a no, though. Would they explode??

    Freezing cream again
    There are all sorts of items in the Cooking section of the MEGA Index sticky listed under freezing - and cream and eggs are both in there to read about.

    Damn... Just in the ASDA earlier and they had LOADS of Single Cream going for 10p per tub (600ml). I checked the label and noticed it is not suitable for freezing, so I only bought 1 tub for me, and another for the dogs (my dogs are NOT lactose intolerant).

    It just hit me now, I could have bought all of them and made a mountain of Paneer (fresh Indian curd cheese). That I could have diced and frozen I am sure. Damn! Next time I will use my noodle.

    I would personally just cling it up and, stored in the fridge, should keep until Friday
    What, 99p for everything? I'd take it off you if I had the room for it!

    I freeze mine all the time and it works just fine.

    You should phone MrT when these things happen, and they will refund you...

    So I froze some double cream without sweetening or whipping.

    And it went all weird and granular - it's split I suppose. I did have some on some hot apple pie and it was ok when it all melted, just a bit lumpy. So I don't think it's going to kill us. but it's not as nice as it should be and frankly after blithely telling OH 'yes of course you can freeze cream' I'm a bit embarrassed about the result (he didn't have any).

    I've got another bagful in the freezer. What can I do to disguise the damage? Cook with it? Heat it up? Any suggestions please?

    can i freeze whipping cream?
    Hi. I've got a question. I'm new in baking & decorating cakes. Yesterday I've buy the "Emborg Whipping Cream" it contain 35% -40% of fat. I have freeze it right away after I've got home. So my question is, can I still use the cream to make frosting for red velvet cupcake? what should i do, wait for it to be thaw first before whip or I can't use it at all? I'm worried if the cream wouldn't stiff and runny. Kindly advise me.

    Has anyone noticed that nearly everything in the fresh food bit in T says you can't freeze? I missed out on so many 'bargains' until I relised even things like stir fry mix, T way of making more money!!
