Potatoes, bread, eggs... you would be surprised how many foods you can freeze ❄️



BREAD


The cupboard is the best place to store bread. Keep bread and rolls in a fairly cool, dark and dry place, like bread bin or cupboard, in their original packaging. (Clean your bread bin or cupboard regularly to get rid of mould spores.) Beyond Best Before? Most packed bread and packaged bakery products can be eaten two days to up to a week after the best before date. Give it a squeeze! If it feels and looks the same as when you bought it, it's good to eat. If mould is present, do not use.


CAN I FREEZE IT?

Yes. You can freeze all varieties of bread. To make it easier to separate bread slices after freezing, bang your loaf gently on a work surface before you put it in the freezer. Slices from a frozen loaf can be defrosted as needed, or toasted straight from the freezer.


FRESHER FOR LONGER

If you store bread in the fridge it will make it go stale quicker! Once a loaf is opened, fold the wrapper under the loaf or re-tie it with the ‘best before’ tag or food clip.


USE IT UP

Stale bread makes great breadcrumbs – you can freeze them to use for crumble or pasta bake toppings, stuffing or thickening sauces. Did you know you can make sandwiches from frozen bread? They will even defrost by lunchtime, keeping the filling cool.




EGGS


The fridge is the best place to store eggs. Store your eggs in the fridge.


CAN I FREEZE IT?

Yes. Simply crack your eggs into a sealable container and freeze. You can separate yolks from whites first if you want to use them for different dishes. Make sure you label the containers so you can easily identify them later on.


FRESHER FOR LONGER

Eggs are best kept in their box to protect them, in the fridge.


USE IT UP

As long as eggs are cooked through, they can be eaten a day or two after their 'best before' date. Use them for a nutritious, cheap meal in an omelette.




POTATO


The cupboard is the best place to store potatoes.Store your potatoes in a cool, dry, dark place, ideally in a cloth bag and away from strong-smelling foods like onions.


CAN I FREEZE IT?

Yes. Leftover cooked potatoes can be frozen. You can also roast boiled potatoes straight from the freezer - pop them in the oven with a little oil to crisp up.


FRESHER FOR LONGER

To store cooked potatoes, cool them as quickly as possible, ideally within one or two hours, and then store in the fridge for up to two days. If potatoes have sprouted, simply remove the sprouts before use, and remember to cut off any green or rotten bits before using.


USE IT UP

Use a potato peeler rather than a knife as this will cut down on waste. Or don't peel at all; you can boil, roast or mash them with the skins on! Keep potato peelings to make delicious homemade crisps. Add salt and pepper, plus whatever extra seasoning you like, then bake in a hot oven.
