Panettone questions

(13 Posts)

I've just opened an out-of-date, but otherwise tasty panettone left from last year. It was a gift that we didn't open as neither DH or the DC would eat it. But Christmas is coming and I want it gone. But it's huge and, now open, it'll probably go off quite quickly.

So, first question. Is out of date panettone safe or is it going to kill me? No mould, still soft, tastes lovely. I'm pregnant and not keen on death by panettone.

Second question. Could I freeze it in portions so that I don't have to scoff the whole thing myself over the next few days?

Any thoughts?

It will be fine, I'm sure. Yes you could freeze it but it makes a nice bread an butter pudding if you have any stale slices.

It will be fine, as long as it is not actually mouldy. They are quite longlasting.

Freeze it in slices so it's easy to use.

It is delicious toasted with a thick layer of butter - it is our regular breakfast during the festive season.

Or you can make a nice bread & butter pudding with it.

There's a recipe for a really scrumptious looking panettone bread and butter pudding in the Christmas edition of Good Housekeeping magazine. It has chocolate chips in too - just in case any of us need a few extra calories over Christmas grin

Wow, great idea to make bread and butter pudding! Annoyingly, DH says he'd eat it in that so I would have to share. And the DC would probably want some if there was custard on top.

I think I'll freeze a few slices, eat some this week, and make it into pudding for lunch on Sunday. Thanks for the ideas.

Another way of using it up as a pudding is to gently fry a couple of slices per person in butter till pale golden. Use this as a base for sliced fruit, fruit compote, fruit fool etc etc etc. Serve with spoonful of yoghurt, soft cheese, custard etc etc etc.
Or use slices to make Poor Knights of Windsor or beak up and make Queen of Puddings, or use in trifle, or.....

If I were you, I would not recommend you to eat a panettone one year later unless the deadline indicated says otherwise. I usually buy my panettone online and rely on what they tell me, for example the site suggests to consume it within 30-40 days.

Well if she is still eating it now that would show astonishing self restraint.

I Iove earnest resurrection of old threads.

Might go and find some grin

It might make a tasty basis for French Toast.
