Preserving Food Safely - 01600595


Is it safe to use canned foods (either home canned or
commercially canned) which have frozen? If freezing does
not break the seal (or seam, in the case of tin cans), the
food will remain usable. However, frozen canned foods may
be less palatable than properly stored canned foods.
Freezing may curdle starchy products. Curdled products
usually become normal after thawing and heating. Thaw
frozen canned foods slowly.

If canned foods must be stored in an unheated place,
wrap the jars or cans in paper or cover them with a blanket.
