    Default freeze margerine????

    someone gave me a huge tub of margerine that is taking up too much space in my fridge. hubby will use only brummel and brown but I can't waste this so I've been using it for recipes. want to break it into smaller containers and freeze it. Will it be OK to cook or bake with after freezing,what is time restriction? I have enough to last me at least 6 months.

    Tub margarine (spreadable) doesn't hold together as well as the stick, but you should have success. You may have to thaw and stir it back together.
    I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

    Thank you Jaime, I will try freezing. Have done it with stick butter but wasn't sure about margerine.

    I usually use the Blue Bonnet tub butter and do put a tub in the freezer (when I pull one out of the freezer I know it is time to add it to the shopping list). I will pull it out and put it in the fridge to thaw overnight and I don't have any problems-doesn't need mixing.

    Tub margarine doesn't do well in baking, because it has a high percentage of water and not enough oil. I would save it for the frying pan, etc. But you can freeze it.

    You can freeze it with no problem. I'd only use it on toast ect. and for pan frying. I've never had to stir it, before I used it. Unless you have let it melt before freezing---then it would have separated.
