Preparing and immediately eating fresh food is preferred as, in doing so, foods maintain their properties. The base of the first solid foods, vegetable broth, however, can be prepared in large quantities and stored in a refrigerator in tightly closed containers for no longer than 48 hours, or frozen in convenient portions.
To preserve food, it is advisable to use polypropylene containers (glass may break by accident).
- vegetable broth should be consumed within 48 hours after cooking, though preferably within 24 hours;
- meat and fish can be stored in the refrigerator for maximum 2 days;
- you cannot refreeze thawed food;
- to thaw, you should store food in the refrigerator 10 hours before use;
- avoid using boiling water to thaw;
- defrosted food should be cooked within 24 hours;
- food must be defrosted before use (cleaned, dried and packaged);
- the container where you freeze the broth should not be filled to the brim, as liquid expands when it freezes.
