Hi All, this should be an easy question...<br><br>
dh just brought home a 10 lb block of frozen chicken backs--solid as a rock. How in the world do I defrost them? (Of course, I just went food shopping today, so there's little room in the fridge.) It's in the 70's/80's here--I can't just leave them out on the counter, right? How long can they be left out safely?<br><br>
thanks.

We that the big blocks in the sink. Just leave them long enough that you can break it up into chunks--the individual pieces should still be pretty frozen. That way you can safely re-bag and re-freeze them.

But then, where do I keep all the dirty dishes? (Surely, you don't mean I should WASH them.)<br><br>
So, I shouldn't thaw completely and then refreeze? (I'm not as stupid as that probably sounds--the humans here don't eat meat, and we haven't bought in quantity for the dog before.)

Every time you completely thaw, the possibility of bacterial growth is higher. So it's better to keep as much frozen as possible.
