How do you keep ice cream from getting freezer burn?
To prevent the ice cream from taking on the odor of that fish or other products from your freezer, use a container with a tight-fitting lid. For extra security, place a layer of plastic wrap between your ice cream and the lid. Air is also responsible for freezer burn, which desiccates and crystallizes the surface of ice cream.
How do you freeze melted ice cream?
To refreeze thawed ice cream, is recommended only it is slightly melted, and has been kept under proper refrigeration. It is also important that it was not exposed to the outside environment. However, if it was almost melted outside the freezer, then you probably risk your health by eating it.
