Recommended time for storing food in freezer

time to freeze food

In general, frozen food has a safety record. Freezing preserves the food by stopping bacteria from multiplying. However, the quality degenerates with time, that’s why there is a time limit to be respected for each type of food.

I prepared printable sheets for every type of food that can be frozen:

  • Eggs in shell
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Coffee
  • Mayonnaise
  • Sour cream
  • Buttermilk
  • Cream cheese
  • Salads
  • Apple
  • Melons
  • lettuce
  • potato (other than mashed)

Additional important tips:

  • Your freezer temperature should be set at -18°C (0°F)
  • keep food packed tightly, no air should get in
  • Label your frozen packages properly
  • Note that liquid expands after freezing, so don’t use glass bottles
