How much food do you have is freezer burnt?

Geeze I threw out some unknown food yesterday. We try to eat all we cook but some is put in the freezer. My wife says don't throw that out. Then we start storing it again. The circle begins again...

Never have freezer burnt food because I have dogs.

I don't think I've got any that is frezer burnt, but I haven't looked too closely. If I had to move and wanted to empty out the freezer, pantry and fridge..... I probably would want to start two months before, give or take.

Never have more than just a couple weeks worth of food at home and don't buy more til its all gone.

Good advice...

@BucketlistBob thanks, i know if i buy more it goes to waste too

Geez, something I don't think about often...better go take a look.

I never waste any food.

Happens ocassionallly, usually after we have had visitors and they leave something unsealed. Chickens do well from it. ie we feed it to them.

I had chickens when I was a kid. I can remember running around to put them in the coup because of the rain... city kids with chickens...lol.

@BucketlistBob I was also a city kid, we had some bantams.

LMAO @ this question.

I found ground pork for swedish meatballs from 2015 the other day 😟 (I thought I'd cleaned everything out since then? )

If it's freezer burnt, throw it out.

None. I don't keep it that long.

My freezer only stores 3 weeks of food so don't really get that problem lol

If its freezer burnt I throw it out. My tenant(my ex) gets meat fron food bank-try to cook it right away Sometimesit comes in freezer burnt. I never refreeze it.

I vacuum pack and label buy in bulk freezer is about 1/2 full. If I go hunting in fall I hope to put an entire stag in there.

I don't have any.

LOL! I can totally relate. I have very good intentions when I buy food that I'll make later; and when I make meals and intentionally double the recipe for leftover freezer meals.

But, the truth is is that sometimes I run out of time or desire before the freezer burn sets in.

I hate throwing out what once was perfectly good food. Since taking on a second part time job, I've stopped buying much fresh food "to eat during the week."

I now buy fresh food for just one meal these days -- otherwise it will go bad before I find the time for it.

Freezer food still needs to get used, however. Thanks for the reminder for me to take something out for cooking in a couple of days. 🙂

Alrighty!

None!
