    Hi, My husband got two deer yesterday. He dressed them out as usual, hung them up, and last night we ground and packaged it in freezer paper (just as we did the one from last week) and put it in the freezer. The one we did last week, nothing odd happened. But this afternoon I opened the freezer...

    When my kids were smaller out of necessity we had to freeze extra bread the problem is when we would thaw it out most of it was unusable because it was hard all around the pieces except in the middle. Does anyone have any advice on how to freeze bread so it is not hard when it thaws out. My DH...

    I found a recipe online for turkey cream soup that sounds really good - and got great reviews. Can cream soups be frozen or will the milk/cream separate out? I've never tried it, and don't want to ruin a big batch of soup with expensive ingredients like butter and half and half in it.

    Has anyone ever frozen buttermilk? If it makes a difference--this is NOT the store buttermilk. It is from making butter. Does the texture/consistency change when it thaws out? Any special way to thaw it? Has anyone ever frozen the extra heavy whipping cream? Does this change when thawed...

    Does it work to freeze a head of romaine lettuce for future salad use? We can only get them in 3 head bags here and that is too much for our use (I like romaine salads, wife doesn't).

    Got a good deal on sweet corn at the farmers market this morning but got WAY more than we need. What's the best way to freeze the kernals? I'm thinking I'll just cut them off the ear but don't want them to be mushy or dehydrated-looking when I want to make some corn in the future. Thanks!
  13. Baking Breads
    ~It works! I love fresh biscuits but hate the mess to make them every time. I experimented with cooked biscuits first but we didn't like the texture and flavor of them thawed. So I made a big batch, cut them, and froze them on a baking sheet until firm and transferred to a baggie. I took the...

    Ok, I have tried freezing pizza before and it didnt work. They always got soggy or didnt raise right, ect. I recently read a new idea on the Internet. Bake your crusts, then, let them cool. Spread your crusts with Crisco (or cheap equivilent) to seal the crust. This keeps the sauce from leaking...

So I cooked them up in my slow cooker, actually had to use both my slow cookers! lol I made a variety of Boston Baked beans that my folks use. But when we made it at...

    We tried blanching and then freezing potatoes, but when cooked they were texturally different. The goal is to chop a bunch up (with peppers and onions), bag 'em up and freeze for later use with potatoes o'brien or frettas. Any way we can do this or do potatoes just not freeze well? Hmmm...

    With me being a beginner cook, I am not sure if this is ok. Can you freeze leftover spaghetti? We had spaghetti on Monday and I made way too much. Can I freeze the noodles and sauce together or the noodles separately? I know the sauce will freeze fine. Thanks for any advice!

    I know you can freeze raw eggs slightly beaten for scrambled eggs. I've done it before. Is there any reason you cannot/should not freeze other ingredients for omelets like onions, peppers, cheese already mixed with the raw eggs? I would plan to thaw the small container (we're talking omelet for...
