Had a couple bags of frozen blueberries. Put them in the fridge to thaw. They've been in the fridge for several weeks. Can I still cook with them?
Trust your nose.
But I suspect they will be long dead - fermented/rotted
I strongly believe it's no good any more.
Update after hearing some comments [2nd update]
When u see liquid in the bag, it means the temp is usually above zero C which means it isn't the ideal temp for frozen berries.
I think it's usually quite ok to keep in the fridge for a few days, but not weeks
[3rd update] I am sorry for whatever confused I caused and I removed the comments about liquid in my previous answer to avoid confusion when people see this post in the future. Anyway, I found a box of forzen berries and here is what the pack suggests.
Please don't eat the berries if they are in the fridge for more than a few days
If I rinse fresh blueberries before I eat them, does that wash off the antioxidants? Why would washing blueberries before freezing them cause tougher-skinned berries?
I read in Can raw eggs be frozen? that you can freeze eeg whites and use them later. I saw this suggestion about using an ice tray to make frozen egg white cubes (which makes it easier later on when you want to use a few eeg whites out of a frozen batch). My problem is, the frozen cubes won't come out of the ice tray! They seem to expand or for some reason stick to the tray very hard. I needed to melt them by running the back of the tray under hot water to get them out. Obviously I can't use any oil or anything like that in the tray to prevent sticking. Any suggestions?
I buy organic blueberries which come in a little plastic container. I like to wash them and put them in a tupperware container. After I wash them I place them between some paper towels to let them dry, but they take forever to dry this way. Is there a better way to this?
I ordered some sushi grade steaks online. They came frozen, as they were shipped with dry ice to keep them nice and cold. Frozen, I cut them into pieces and put them back in the freezer, taking out one chunk at a time and thawing in the fridge. Sushi grade steaks do not need to be cooked, since they are kept frozen at temperatures where parasites cannot survive so there is no concern of the meats contaminating anything. Once thawed, how long do I have to keep them in the fridge until they pose a health risk? Since this might depend on the type of fish, I will leave the question open
I have a pack of fish in the fridge that says cook from frozen, is it safe to cook now it has defrosted. I have had it for one day in the fridge
I'm taking a trip to the berry patch today. I'd like to get say 3 pounds of blueberries and freeze them. The problem is that when you defrost them, they're all busted up and mushy. So I wonder if I could put them in the oven at 150 for an hour or so and dry them out a bit before I freeze them. Would that pull some of the water out and result in less exploded berries when the water in them freezes? What's the best way to freeze a blueberry? Edit: years later, bought a food dehydrator. Gotta say, a dehydrated blueberry is much tastier than a previously frozen blueberry. Easier to store (use
I read all the very useful answers to this question Can raw eggs be frozen? But my question is a bit different: When making anything that needs whipped egg whites, the condition (cleanness/pusity) of utensile and the egg whites is essential. I wanted to know if I freeze egg whites would I be able to melt and whip them later?
I have never used frozen pizza dough before so I didn't know how long it would take for it to thaw out. I plan on using it tonight for dinner (in about 7-8 hours) and I thought it would take much longer for the rock hard dough to thaw out. I have had it covered and sitting on the kitchen counter and it's almost completely thawed out! So once it's thawed can I keep it in the fridge until I'm ready to use it?
There are a lot of edible things that come to mind when I think about what can be frozen. But when I think about things you better not put in the freezer, I honestly have no idea. So, what food and/or drinks come out of the freezer unusable? (I really am asking about the use, rather than the texture. For example, blueberries would come out mushy, but you can still use them in some dishes.) And are there things that completely lose their taste or even get an other taste?
