I’m not sure what us Americans would do without freezers.
Eat more canned and tetra-packed stuff, I guess. But it seems pointless to ignore viable methods of storing food, especially now, when most of us are shopping less frequently. I wouldn’t freeze paella either, 'cause the seafood would get rubbery. But soup? stew? a batch of of dumplings? fresh fish that you’re not going to eat in the next two days? I don’t see why not.
Yes, it’s very specifically cultural. Like the way we shop, and quantities of things.
Are we talking about freezing food? Store bought puff pastry, egg whites, shrimp, butter, bones for stock, nuts, yeast, bread (I don’t eat it much), cooked beans…) This could be a new topic.
Looks like it’s been done, but not “one to rule them all”.
I’ve never thought of doing that. Great to know!
