I regularly make homemade mash using the following ingredients

  • Potatoes
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Carrots
  • Cabbage (2 varieties)
  • Onion
  • Leek
  • Butter
  • Cream
  • Cayenne Pepper / Paprika

This is the first time I have made a 4-5 litre batch and would like to freeze it. Will it be safe to eat despite having fresh cabbage mashed into the recipe?

  • Are you saying that the cabbage is uncooked? Could you describe the process / recipe?

  • Hi @Joe - the cabbage is cooked thoroughly. It is simply boil all ingredients, strain, add cream and butter and mash. Commented Jan 9, 2015 at 17:24

There isn't much you can't safely freeze, and your mash looks pretty straightforward to me. As long as you're following USDA safe freezing/thawing methods, I say, yes, freeze on!
