One of those times I'm really glad I'm not sat in the office. I laughed so loud!
me want to hug her. she's so cute!
i wouldn't have looked at that thread otherwise :D:D
I almost cried.
"Bread should at no point be solid."
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
that is amazing.
it's so exasperating!
I'm kind of thinking this is pretty much condescending. I'm not stupid. Bread shouldn't be frozen, and I am not stupid.
Thank you x
...if it's frozen.
That's why you're so great, you just can't accept it!
And I'm not accepting it because it isn't true.
it tastes better as a result...
the unanimity here convinces PocketMouse..
You like your women like you like your coffee? Ground up and in the freezer?
...people do it, yet have not died as a result?
But I still don't think it's good for you. I bet half of them haven't even tried it anyway.
i've never done it because i buy fresh bread pretty much every other day and get through it pretty quickly. my mum used to freeze bread all the time though
And have done for about...well, my entire life, pretty much.
have made my hangover ridden afternoon pass much more pleasantly. thankyou
but it tastes shit. milk too.
just liek, buy the right amount.
milk tastes fine as well, you just have to shake it up sufficiently first.
Tastes worse the less fat there is in it. If you freeze that Jersey Cow extra-creamy breakfast milk it tastes fine.
Semi-Skimmed starts to taste dodgy and then skimmed just tastes shit.
But skimmed milk tastes shit anyway. I pity women, sometimes.
thats creamy goodness on the top of the milk was AMAZING on cornflakes. Fact
how does milk taste any different? it just tastes like milk! and bread has a bit of a different texture, but tastes fine.
frozen foodstuffs fascist.
but, as i said, shaking it up a considerable amount tends to negate that, at least in my experience.
we get through milk to quickly anyway.
and actually now i think about it bread tastes pretty much the same too
saying that, i hardly ever drink milk, so probably don't taste the difference
it is perfectly preserved in the state it was frozen!!!!
especially not if it was frozen in your ordinary household freezer
I buy bread and pitta and freeze them both immediately coz I don't eat that much, and I only eat them toasted anyway.
Hummus and pitta mmmmm
Except for sliced bread. That always tastes shit.
you can take out a couple of slices and stick them straight in the toaster and it tastes as good as if it's fresh! YES!
housemate made a sandwich with some bread from the freezer and left it in the kitchen overnight. when he got up, it was insufficiently defrosted so he put it in the microwave for FIVE MINUTES ... when he took it out and it had been reduced to hot plasticine, he decided the best thing to do was to put it back in a sandwich bag and then refreeze it.
I think it probably tasted a bit bad...
I used to make my sandwiches on Sunday then freeze them all in individual bags.
In the morning I'd just grab a bag of sandwiches and it would have defrosted fine by the time it came to lunch.
I think I was talking about you in the other thread.
Oh how scary! :D
but microwaves are bad. They reduce everything you put in them to hot plasicine, it's just mostly you can't see it.
if you do it the suggest defrost temp, and at a ratio of about 1 minute per 100g, it's fine!
i'm mostly basing this off paninis and subway rolls..
thought it was mental to assume that if you'd massively over-microwaved something you could just go and freeze it and all would be well..
i always try to defrost bolognase and curry and stuff on 'defrost' and it just cooks the stuff round the edge and leaves a block of curry-ice in the middle. Stupid microwave.
They're fairly rubbish. You do have to keep stirring and keeping an eye on it.
Usually I just microwave such things for a bit so that they're free of the tupperware type container and then stick them in a pan to warm.
Have you never seen frozen garlic bread on sale in supermarkets?!!
Nevermind, you are cute AND entertaining.
because they've already frozen it, so it's clear that it is supposed to be frozen.
I wouldn't freeze the garlic bread they have in the fridge bits. Not that I eat the stuff anyway.
and bamos freezing bread?
things like garlic bread. Not hovis or warburtons. Bamos freezes that kind of bread. Normal bread.
it just has garlic on it.
insightful is my middle name!
do you think that garlic is some kind of antifreezing agent?
Otherwise why would they freeze it?
and eat it at their convenience
and so that the supermarket and have it on the shelf for longer
not literally on a shelf. in a freezer
...would have to defrost it before they could make their sarnies!
It does tend to lose something during the freezing process but it still tastes fine and it's exactly the same if you toast it. Most things are better fresh but the powers of freezing make things last longer - very important in today's busy world.
I used to work in a bakery. I am the knowledge.
they don't have to defrost it
so freezing it doesn't really cause any inconvenience to the person buying it, it just means 5 minutes extra cooking time or something
Garlic bread is always toasted so it makes sense to freeze it first.
then people would have to then defrost it before eating it, which is a hassle for those who dont feel freezing to be necessary. this isnt an issue with garlic bread, as it has to be cooked anyway.
why won't you actually believe people? Surely if Tescos puts 'suitable for home freezing' on the packaging, it's fine to do so? They wouldn't do it if it would get them into trouble, right?
I don't understand why you wouldn't believe people.
I don't understand why anyone would freeze it, or how it could possibly be the same after the freezing process.
freezing only means that water inside the bread changes from liquid to solid. When you defrost it, that water changes back to water. The bread stays the same.
they freeze it for their own convenience, and it just it.
I don't know why i'm bothering, it's all been said before.
so you're aware of the defrosting process, right?
When you defrost frozen bread it becomes soft again. Admittedly, defrosted bread isn't quite as good as fresh bread. But the convenience makes it worthwhile.
You know that irritating scenario when you go to make toast late at night when all the shops are shut, but - OH NO! - the bread is mouldy.
Well if you freeze a loaf for safe keeping. THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN, YAY!
On the best before date of your bread, and make sure, if the current one is about to expire, you go and buy some more. It's really very simple.
as buying two and freezing one.
that you disapprove of those who freeze bread?
action of freezing bread, yes.
some people lead extremely busy lives where-by remembering to get fresh bread slips quite far down on the priority list of things to do in a day.
Frozen bread is a back-up in case a hectic day at work + out playing a gig + paying the bills + changing the oil on the car + lots of other stuff means you forget to get fresh bread!
You could surely have got new bread? I don't see the convenience...
Take the slices out of the freezer and put them in the toaster.
It tastes EXACTLY the same as free bread.
Won't the slices be all frozen together?
This sounds like an awful lot of effort to go to just to get bread. But, you know, if everyone wants to eat frozen bread, I guess I can just about be okay with it.
because i am poor, and don't use much bread. If i freeze it it means one loaf lasts for ages, and i don't have to go and buy a new loaf every time i want some bread.
Also, some people don't live with shops right next door, and it would be much moree convenient just to leave frozen bread out at night to make sandwiches with in the morning rather than going to the shops every day
you are allowed
It would be convenient for me to eat the contents of one of those cans in our cupboard reading "Best Before April 1997". But I don't.
but in the same vein, i'd eat something canned that was a year out of date. Maybe not 10 years, even though it'd probably be fine...
You'd... just... what??
obviously if it didn't look right i wouldn't, but tinned food is supposed to last for years, the use by dates are only really there as a precaution. If there was a can of beans in my cupboard that was best before April 06, i'd still eat it.
...will keep for much longer than their use by dates as long as the tin is not rusted/has a hole in etc apparently...
Is it? I think I'm being faced with too much for today.
...law states that all foodstuffs packaging must display a sell-by date, hence tins have them.
...don't have a Scandinavian money-pig...unfortunately neither do I.
If you defrost it, it explodes and forms a clove the size of a hot air balloon
I have some garlic, I have a freezer!
GARLIC BOMB PARTY!!!
that there are TWO threads centred around this. Both over 100 replies...
apart from one person.

Chumbawamba rulez!!! :(
of me defrosting bread, just to prove it works.
It tastes just as nice, arguably better.
It's physically possible. I'm just not convinced it's edible afterwards.
It's common to freeze things if you aren't going to use them quickly.
if you don't like it, fair enough, but you should try it.
frozen bread = the way forward
If possible I will convince myself to attempt a nibble at it once defrosted. Most likely I'll look at it and want to be sick.
I know it won't be.
Cat proved it with science! -
this is exactly what id do
i still want to make a video showing my marvellous onion cutting technique my dad showed me
your onion cutting technique isn't as good as mine (mine is really good)
that the need arises for chopped onions, i challenge you to an onion chopping skillz test.
It's like trying to convince the pope to stop believing in god at points.
which kinda makes it the best thread ever.
