 Thaw Meat, Fish, Vegetables and Fruit from the Freezer

Correct thawing of frozen food is just as important as freezing correctly. The thawing process affects the texture, flavour and nutritional value of all frozen food.
We give thawing times and methods below for meat, fish, vegetables and fruit.

 

Thawing Meat
Meat is best thawed in the fridge but it can also be thawed in a cool part of a room if space in the fridge is at a premium.

Time is also a consideration. Meat in the fridge takes about 5 times longer to thaw compared to room temperature.
Click here to find out the pros and cons of thawing meat and specific times required.


Thawing Fruit
Fruit can always be thawed in the fridge but there are circumstances when thawing at room temperature is just as good. It all depends on how you plan to use the fruit.

At a pinch, fruit can be thawed much quicker under running water. Click here for more details on how to correctly thaw fruit.
