I'm making casserole or soup which needs creme fraiche stirred in towards the end. If I want to freeze it should I do it before I put the creme fraiche in, reheat and then stir it in? Or stir it in, freeze and just reheat? That just seems a bit dodgy to me!

I'd freeze without the creme fraiche.
Does it say anything like 'not suitable for home freezing' on the tub?

Haven't bought anything yet, just planning ahead, but I can't imagine it freezing well!

I'd freeze it without, but I'd also write a label that said to add creme fraiche when heating. Otherwise I forget!!

I don't think it freezes well either, most recipes I've read say add the creme fraiche once defrosted & upon reheating.
Pain really as I was gonna make a batch of Jamie Oliver's 30minute meal chicken pie filling up, but the sauce uses it!! Be a bit pointless freezing bits of chicken, mushroom and spring onions!!wink
