If you are like me, freezing food is a necessity. Freezer meals are part of your daily life, whether planning, preparing or cooking them. But do you know how to store those freezer meals so they don’t go bad before you actually eat the food?
Freezer Meals: How Long is Too Long?
To make sure defrosted food is as fresh, nutritious and tasty as before freezing it, there are certain rules to follow. For example:
- Food should always be frozen at the peak of its ripeness/freshness
- Some types of food do not freeze well, such as eggs in shell or potatoes
- Liquids expand in cold temps, so it’s important to leave enough room in the container when freezing beverages, etc.
