We love freezers because they store our precious food for days, weeks and sometimes even months. Some tasty treats, such as ice cream, are naturally made for a freezer, but other foods and drinks should never come close to your freezer. Some products are not made for freezing, have you become curious which products these are?
Have you ever felt like drinking ice-cold champagne? And would you therefore put the bottle in the freezer? Do not do it! The carbonization in the liquid can cause the bottle to explode in the freezer. The right alternative is to cool the champagne in a so-called ice bucket with a healthy mix of ice and water.
Storing eggs in the freezer is a big no-no. When the eggs are frozen, their water content expands, and with this expansion harmful bacteria are created and the shell will crack. And admit, a frozen egg doesn’t look very tasty, does it? Look at the next page for the other products!
3. Fried food
Fried foods, such as French fries and crispy chicken, become a total mush after they have been frozen. Of course fries are allowed in the freezer when they are still in the bag and have just come out of the supermarket!
Beer is another alcoholic beverage that must be kept out of the freezer. In a can, frozen beer can deform the can and make it almost impossible to drink, while beer in a bottle can break into the freezer. If a frozen beer can is still intact, try defrosting it in the refrigerator.
No, this is not the same as frozen yogurt. Freezing fresh yogurt will change its consistency to something like cottage cheese. It can then also start sifting during the defrosting process. Go tot he next page!
People who think they can freeze avocado are wrong. Okay technically it is possible, but the taste, color and texture are considerably worse! The avocado turns completely brown and the taste changes to a bitter good!
7. Thawed meat
The defrosting of frozen meat is essential for preparing a delicious meal. But if the meat or seafood has already thawed, do not put it back in the freezer. That’s just asking for food poisoning!
When cheese is frozen, it can be compared to other dairy products: it changes its texture and crumbles.
