Question Frozen Food Friends


#1

Found some sausages in my freezer that were dated best before end of March. Chucked em in the fridge to defrost. Should I eat them? Would you eat them?
Thanks in advance. Will check in for your answers later.


Best Before Dates
#2

Were they frozen when you bought them or did you freeze them?


#3

If you put them in the freezer as soon as you bought them and they’ve been there since, I’d eat them. I’d probably cook from frozen though.


#4

Yeah, I’d fry them until the outsides are browned and then stick 'em in the oven until cooked through.


#5

I’ll answer this quickly as I’m still on the toilet but then I really must go. I bought them fresh then froze them when I realised I would not be eating them before the best before date.


#6

It’ll be fine.

But hopefully you’re not on the toilet from eating something else that was out of date. If so ignore my advice.


#7

Yeah they’ll be fine, just overcook them a bit (slightly burnt sausages are best anyway imo).


#8

Yes, they’ll be perfectly fine. Like I said, fry them to brown the outside and then stick them in the oven for half an hour or so. Then check with a sharp knife to make sure they’re cooked through properly.


#9

another vote for fine


#10

Yeah they’ll be fine.

If you were asking in 2 months time, when said snags had been in the freezer for > 6 months my advice would have been to not eat them.


#11

I’ll eat anything that has been in the freezer. 6 months/2 years/before the invention of freezers. idgafm hashtagrockandroll


#12

6 months is too short. I would make a year my limit. Have tested this theory and not died / been ill so science is with me.


#13

don’t check the date on things that come out the freezer

if it’s in the freezer then it’s good until the end of time as far as i’m concerned


#14

Flavour may be affected to a degree. But they won’t be harmful.


#15

same :heart:


#16

Yeah fair rationale that. I was just told once that you shouldn’t keep meat in a freezer for more than 6 months once and it’s stuck with me. That and once I defrosted a pork chop that had been in the freezer for over a year and it gave me astonishing diarrhoea.


#17

I like this thinking.

I’ve had some tiger prawns in there for well over a year, maybe two.

Internet says 6 months.

japesy says forever.


#18

honestly, i’d have no qualms about eating them. 100% go for it.

on an unrelated note, can i have your moss collection after you die?


#19

the skies have crumbled
the stars have extinguished
the seas have evaporated
the atoms are expanding apart
Might as well have those sausages now


#20

is moss safe to eat?
