Top tips for fail-safe freezing

You’ve got the cooking down – here’s how to freeze your save-for-later delights like a pro. Just so you know, you need to allow all of these one-pot wonders to thaw before reheating them in the oven or microwave.

Wrap and label: Make sure to package all your food up tightly, sealing out as much air as possible to avoid freezer burn. Divide packs of meat and fish into portions. 

Stock up: Freezers function best when almost full – a sliced loaf is a thrifty way to fill a gap.

Open-freezing: A great method for fruit and veg: simply lay pieces out on a lined baking tray to freeze before bagging up. Vegetables should be blanched first then cooled in iced water.

Freezer friends: You’re onto a winner putting this lot in the freezer. Soups, stews and bakes; egg yolks and whites (separate first); grated cheese; raw pastry and bread dough; milk and butter.

Freezer foes: Avoid putting these ones on ice. Salad vegetables; soft herbs; potato pieces (opt for mashed instead); low-fat dairy; un-whipped cream; mayonnaise and emulsions; cooked eggs.
