A whole plaice that's been in the freezer since November?

It's fine, I'm sure.
I'm just a bit 'been there too long' phobic.

Yes? Why wouldn't you?

if it's in the freezer I probably would. I seem to be super fussy with things in the fridge (throwing them away too soon maybe) but then I go to the other extreme with things in freezer, assuming (wrongly I'm sure) that they last forever.

I wouldn't want to eat a whole plaice, but "been in the freezer since November" would not bother me.

I'm not exactly bothered about sell by dates etc mind...

Yes, can't see why not.

I have a 2 year old bolognase in my freezer that I will probably still eat at a push grin

Yes, I think in a freezer it's fine indefinitely.

Wolpertinger Mon 28-Mar-16 14:05:56

Yes. I've got stuff that's been in there longer we're plodding our way through.

Yes, I've got stuff in my freezer that's been there years that I'd happily get out and eat.

Cookingongas Mon 28-Mar-16 16:35:21

Of course! I can't think why you wouldnt- unless it was inappropriately frozen and is now freezer burnt?

Doje Mon 28-Mar-16 16:37:22

Yep! Not even close to when I would start getting concerned.

dementedpixie Mon 28-Mar-16 16:38:06

The texture/quality might be compromised but I wouldn't think there would be a safety issue

To be honest, I never think about how long stuff has been in the freezer. We defrost ours every two years, so I guess that means de facto nothing ends up being frozen longer than that.

FellOutOfBedTwice Mon 28-Mar-16 17:45:46

Definitely! We've eaten stuff that's getting on for a year old before. All that happens is it maybe loses flavour a bit but it's still perfectly edible.

Thank you. I'll eat it. I thought it'd be fine but DP is unsure.
