Tuesday Tip | Not sure if it’ll freeze? Try a small test.

I’ve gotten several questions lately about whether or not this or that can be frozen.

I’m happy to answer these questions if I know the answer, but sometimes I don’t!

And the interwebs in general are a good place to check for help with this, but sometimes the item in question is so specific, it’s hard to find good information.

In cases such as these, I recommend freezing a small test sample and then thawing it to see how it turns out.

For instance, a reader wondered if she could freeze cooked fish cakes that she makes from my recipe.

(Here’s the fish cake recipe!)

I’ve never tried freezing them before, but I suggested that next time she makes them, she could set aside one cake, freeze it for a day or two, and then thaw it and see if the results are acceptable.

That way she wouldn’t be potentially wasting a whole batch of fish cakes, and she’ll know for sure whether or not she wants to freeze a big batch in the future.

So.

If a good google search doesn’t deliver a clear answer to you, freeze a little sample and test it out yourself.  Then you’ll know for sure!
