How Long Should You Store Foods in the Freezer
If you’re wanting to make food and store it for later, it’s good to know how long you should store certain foods and which foods to avoid freezing altogether.
Technically, if food is in the freezer and the freezer is plugged in and functioning at an optimal temperature of -18 degrees celsius (or 0 degrees fahrenheit), food will never go bad. However, freezer burn has a way of ruining the taste and texture of foods even though they haven’t ‘gone bad’.
As a general rule, foods will stay free of freezer burn for three months, if they’re in a sealed package. The more often you open the freezer and the less secure the packaging, the quicker the freezer burn.
