I'm due with twins at the beginning of November and want to stock the freezer up with some meals. I've done this before with my other kiddos, but usually just about 1-2 months in advance of their due date. I'm wanting to get the freezer stocked a lot sooner this time, while I still have a little bit of energy.

So, how long can I keep meals in the deep freeze?

Thanks!

No one?

I'm just hoping that if I make things in the next 4-6 weeks, they'll be good til we use them in November. Anyone?

Sorry I don't have an answer, but I bet if you find the "Feed the Freezer" thread and ask there, you'll get your answer. Otherwise, PM one of the main posters on there (not mentioning names ) and they'd be able to tell you.

Good luck!

I think between 3-6 months in a deep freezer for most foods. The longer the food is in the freezer, the more deterioration there will be (ie ice crystals forming on the food & changing the texture).

You could check your local library for cooks illustrated magazine. They had (sometime this year) in on of there issues info on how long to keep food in the freezer.

good luck
