Freezing and drying are two common methods of preventing food spoilage. Ask how to freeze and dry specific foods here.
yeh u can cook them in water but defrost it from half or one hour  first
Since jerky is made by drying the meat simply soak in water for as long as it takes for the water to start changing color. Depending on how long it soaks some of the spice may escape as well; not to worry. A fresh marinade of citrus, vinegar, or juice can add flavor where the salt used to be. Re...

I froze some canned anchovies, maybe as long as a few months ago. I put them in a small zip lock plastic bag in the door of my freezer. I pulled them out to use them, but wasn't sure if they were still good. The smell and taste seemed stronger. Are they safe to eat?

advantages- use it on a latter day, keeps it from spoiling. disadvantages- ice crystals form in the food causing cells to burst, does not taste the same as if it were fresh.
Ones with horzontal trays.One brand is 'Excalibur'.   Heat and air flow are the critical componenets to drying food. It is best to use a dehydrator that has horizontal or vertical air flow (many people prefer horizontal as it more evenly distributes air across the food drying trays) and one...

Yes, meat can go bad in a freezer that is down. Meat going bad in a freezer that is down depends on how long the freezer is down, how full the freezer is and other factors. If the freezer is down, keep the door closed as much as possible in order to keep the cold inside. If the freezer temperature...
Yes first put the hamburgers in a container. Leave them out for an hour and then put it in.Clarification:You can put them back in the freezer if they didn't reach room temperature, they need to still be cold. And DO NOT leave them out for an hour as the above answer states. That will only allow time...
Wet ingredients are those such as milk, eggs, yogurt, or other "wet" items in a recipe. Similar to soft. Dry ingredients are like flour, sugar, baking soda, etc.
Several examples of dehydrated foods are apples, bannanas, and pears.
Heat and air flow are the two critical factors for drying food. The cover lets some steam and humid air out as the food is dried.
That's not too likely because the only difference between the two is one has red food coloring and the other has green food coloring and they both have their respective artificial flavoring. Otherwise, they're exactly the same.
It lasts longer if you dry it. Also, some people thing dried food tastes better that non dried.
It depends on what you want to use...DON'T use any meats that have been unfrozen for a whole day. They can make you sick... Ice cream and vegtables should be ok... Just look at them and smell it. Even taste alittle bit if you want to. But if it looks funky don't use it.
It is not recommended as a safe practice.
It keeps food from rotting or becoming sour like milk.
Yes, the galangal can be frozen by slicing the unpeeled root into  quarter-inch thick slices, then wrapping well and freezing. Frozen  galangal holds its flavor well and does not need to be peeled like  ginger. It should be good up to 3 months.
Prepared mustard might not spoil, but it can lose flavor and change color. And becomes watery . Honey is one food that does not spoil. Honey will turn to hard sugar (inedible) eventually.
because it doesn't have any hing in it.
yes it is. it's a dried grape . pearl
yes you obviously can if you own a freezer and it functions properly
Uncooked, as it is generally not a good idea to freeze most cooked foods. Since you will have to heat up the food when you want to eat it, you are effectively re-heating food. Cordon Bleu is a type of food which you should not re-heat.
Yes, you can freeze lamb.
Yes that's why antifreeze is used, these are the freezing points of some types of oil. Motor Oil (15W) +15 Motor Oil (30W) 0 Hydraulic Oil, Gear Lube & Gear Oil -10 Motor Oil (10W30) -20 2-Cycle Oil -25 Motor Oil (5W30) -30 Mobil 1 Engine Oil (15W50) -35 Antifreeze -40 Mobile 1 Engine Oil ...

1. Separate the different color beans into piles.   2. Place each color in a separate plastic bag.   3. Date the bags and place in the freezer.
Of course it does. Don't you get colder faster when it is -20 degrees as opposed to -2 degrees? Same principle.
Depending how it was frozen, specifically the packaging used and the temperature maintained, it may be frozen for up to three years.
Yes, salt lowers the freezing point of ice.
Yes, you can eat food that has "freezer burn". However, it tends to not taste as good as non-burned food. The freezer burn is actually just dehydration of that part of the food due to sublimation of the ice; because this takes a long time, freezer-burn doesn't occur to foods before (usually) about 3...
You take fruit and make sure you get all of the juices out, you add pectin and sugar. Then get a pressure cooker and put it into jars until it says it is done. Then get it out with tongs (IT WILL BE HOT) and wait for it to set and go cold before putting it away. .......................................

A food dehydrator works by using warm moving air to remove liquid from food. As long as your dehydrator is not one that goes into the microwave, aluminum foil is safe.
If there is water that is clean then i would say fish and animals on the freezing area.
Im sure you can try microwaving it
There is no rule for how long dehydrated food will last. Dehydrated foods' shelf life depends on various factors including the food, the dehydrating method used, the drying time, the food dehydrated and how the food is stored.

Generally you can freeze any meat that hasn't been previously frozen (freezing twice destroys the cell structure resulting in pour texture and flavor.) Vacuum packing simple removes any air from inside the package, which generally allows meat to keep for longer. If you plan to freeze meat, it is...
As with all freezing questions: You can freeze anything, it's the defrosting that is the problem. Mushrooms contain a lot of water and during the freezing process, the expansion of the ice alters the cell structure. When they are defrosted, they will not have the same consistency, probably more...
After being defrosted, frozen foods must be cooked before being re-frozen.
Dates are usually dried, so you would only need to freeze them if you wanted to keep them for quite a long time (like a year). In that case, you can put them in an airtight freezer bag or other airtight container and put them in the freezer. It would be helpful to freeze small amounts in small...
