View Full Version : Freezing Burgers??
05-26-2009, 02:20 AM
i was on a carrot-apple-ginger track for the last two, three days, so i made lots of juice.
The pulp of course I didn't throw away, but made great Burgers from it. Unfortunately I have so many Burgers now, I will need two years to eat them all up .... So, I questioned: would it be possible to freeze them?? Well, I mean of course you can, but are they still considered "raw" then or do they lose their flavor or their minerals and vitamins?? Like, are they like SAD food after being frozen??
Thanx in advance and have a lovely day y'all ! :D

Freezing doesn't make it s.a.d. I don't know what the texture would be like without dehydrating first. That's a lot of Storage, I would use it for compost.
Try freezing one and see. I hope your results are favorable.
I've made 3 different burger recipes and have successfully frozen them all. I've got some in the freezer right now. *Ü*

Nutritional value probably will be a little lower, but then again so is the nutritional value of your fresh produce after you store it in the fridge for a few days. I would pop them back into the dehydrator for an hour or two after they have thawed just to crisp up the outside and get them warmed. I've frozen all sorts of things in the past, including (raw) burgers and bread.

I had similar questions regarding freezing.....I looked into it online and went thorough a lot of information. The consensus seemed to be overwhelmingly that freezing causes no harm. It's only if you don't package it properly and also freezer burn that causes issues.

thanx so much y'all, i guess i will give it a try, since i have some more 2 kg to make burgers from :D i'm using tupperware for freezing so things should not burn or anything and there is nothing else in the freezer right now, so i have no space problems either hehe but before freezing them all, i will definitely have some with the sweet mustard i made.
does anyone have a fast and easy mayonnaise recipe?? the ones i found seem to be a bit complicated, even though they look great!! and also searching for other recipes for creamy sauces that would mach the burgers. any hints?
have a great day ahead, it's 8 am here :-)

I use a simple raw mayonnaise recipe that I got from Raw Rose's book "Uncooking with Raw Rose."
It's delicious and uses pretty normal ingredients that we all probably have at home. It's macadamia-nut based.
Here's the full raw mayonnaise recipe. (http://rawtarian.wordpress.com/2009/09/23/raw-mayonnaise-recipe/).
It's delicious. I am addicted to it!
