Can Bacon and Gammons Be Frozen

We often get asked the question Can Bacon and Gammons  be frozen?  The simple answer is yes, you can freeze all our bacon and Gammon. However… a point to remember.
Freezing is great for convenience and it will help you save more as the bulk buy is available on many of our pork products online.

How Can Bacon and Gammons be frozen to get the best results:
There is a way to freeze bacon and gammon to keep it is tasty as possible. Always wrap the bacon or gammon as carefully as possible. Brown paper or aluminium foil is good as you want to prevent frost from forming on the outer layers of the bacon.
Wrap initially in greaseproof paper or baking sheets, followed by the foil and or brown paper. Don’t think you are overdoing it.
The problem with freezing especially over a longer period of time is the ice crystals formed in the bacon do cause the product to lose its juices when you defrost it. Therefore it can lose some of the beautiful flavours we have taken many months to produce.
So, get wrapping. Freeze the day it is delivered to you and wrap as much as possible.

    How long will it take to defrost a 4 lb gammon. Also have I spoiled it by just wrapping it in a plastic bag ?

      It will take around 1 day to defrost completely-presumably you have wrapped in a plastic bag prior to freezing?
