    Hi everyone! This might be a daft question, and I wasn't really sure where to post it but...I've had some chilli in my freezer for about a year :eek: will it be safe to defrost, cook and eat it or should I just throw it away and start again...? Thanks :)

    i'd get it out hun defrost it see what it looks and smells like then decide. also depends who u r gonna fed it to. if its just u and another adult as long as it looks and smells ok i'd risk it. u will know if it tastes odd
    but i don't think i'd give it a child

    I was brought up 'waste not want not'. So I'd eat it, it's only been in the freezer, it'll be yummy.:D

    I am super funny about out of date stuff. How long can you freeze normal mince?

    I would prob chuck it to be fair.

    Sorry xx

    haha!! im normally pretty hardcore wen it comes to this kind of thing..I eat things a bit past there sell by date, i defrost things quickly, i reheat rice (and anything else!), all the things myths say we arent meant to do...

    I think iy would be safe to eat it but the quality of flavour would be poor after all this time. I agree with defrost it and see what you think. As long as you heat it to the proper temperature for the correct amout of time it shouldn't do any harm.

    I agree with eternity. It would be okay to eat but the flavour would be reduced.
    I hate wasting any food but I don't think I'd eat this hun.

    Home made food that gets frozen should be eaten within 3 months or so, as it doesn't contain all the preservatives of shop bought stuff. Here's a site which has a list of foods and how long they keep:

    How Long Will Food Last in the Freezer? | Real Simple

    I guess chilli would come under 'meat casserole' which would mean 3 months.

    Personally, I wouldn't eat any home cooked food that's been in there longer than a month.
