am going to try ppk's recipe for seiten. how long does homemade seiten keep in fridge? what's the best way to freeze & how long will it keep in freezer? what's best way to defrost it? does freezing it change its texture or consistency?
I only ever bake mine (which I'm assuming is the PPK one you are trying? The Seitan O Greatness?). I keep it in the fridge for no more than 4 days. To freeze it I cut my log into quarters (but do whatever suits you. 1/4 gives me a meal usually) and chuck it in a plastic bag and freeze it. I'd go with the 6 month rule. Mine usually only lasts about a fortnight anyway
It's too yummy.
Once it's defrosted I don't find any difference in the texture at all. Maybe a teeny bit wetter but not enough to make a difference in a recipe that I've found. To defrost I just chuck it on the bench and let it sit. Sometimes if I remember I chuck it in the fridge but most of the time it sits there till room temp and I've yet to get sick from it.
