Methods, techniques, and quality/safety concerns around the freezing of various foods.

Use this tag if you have a question about:

  • Whether or not a particular food can be frozen safely;
  • How freezing can affect the quality of a food;
  • How to prevent ice crystals, freezer burn, or other issues associated with a frozen food;
  • How to correctly prepare a food for freezing;
  • ...or any other question specifically related to storing food in a freezer

Do not use this tag for questions about pre-frozen foods (i.e. purchased frozen) unless the question is specifically about the subsequent storage of those foods.

If your question is about defrosting a frozen food, use the tag instead.

If you are concerned with the safety (as opposed to quality) of a frozen item, consider including the tag in addition to .
