I have fresh vegetables that froze/!?
I have some carrots, sweet potatoes and onion that froze in my REFRIGERATOR!. I had them in the bottom drawer!.
My question is, are they still okay to use!? What if I used them in soup!?
Can I still bake the sweet potatoes in the oven!?
Any suggestions, help and hints are appreciated!.
I don't need a recipe!. Just want to know if it is okay to use these frozen fresh vegetables!?Www@FoodAQ@Com
They should be absolutely fine - you can definately make soup from them, but could also make mash or purees from them!.
The sweet potato should also bake well - remember that when potatoes are stored in the fridge the carbohydrates change to sugar carbohydrates, so it's best to let them reach room temperature before cooking then so the carbohydrates can change back!. Not a big deal if they don't, but they will taste a wee bit nicer !.
Sweet potato and caramalised onion gratin!.!.!.!.mmmmmmm!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!. !.
I always try and put fragile foodstuff in the front of the shelves as the back can get rather cold and freeze things like lettuce and herbs!. hate when that happens!!Www@FoodAQ@Com
They're best for soup, and you'll probably want to run it through a food processor or stick blender because the texture may be off, but the flavor will still be good !.
But if they look okay after they thaw, you can use them however you like!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
