|You can freeze raw eggs - only don't freeze them in their shells! It is useful to know how many you are freezing or freeze them in an ice cube tray so that you can count them into a recipe if necessary. If you need to use yolks for custard you can freeze the whites until you have enough to make a meringue (so much nicer than bought). |
I've often frozen slabs of cheddar. The texture can be a little more crumbly but the taste is fine.
Bananas can be put into a smoothie when frozen (only you want them to be peeled). It is a great way to save wasting them when they suddenly all ripen at once and you haven't got around to making banana bread.
In fact you can freeze just about anything.
If you freeze things before their Use By date then you extend their life. Best Before (except for eggs) is exactly that Best Before and not poisonous after! You can use eggs with care after their best before date. Cook them thoroughly - as in a cake!
There is a sheet from moneysavingexpert.com that can be downloaded and laminated here. This is something that all our students going off to uni should have for ready reference and for backing up their side of the argument:
