Mil got some ice cream out of the freezer in the garage last night for dd and put it away afterwards. Went out there a few minutes ago and it was all thawed out. :(she tried to say to just refreeze everything but that doesn't work, right? Pretty sure once it's thawed you have to use it. Am i right here? Just making sure.

    Pretty sure if there are still ice crystals you can freeze. I may be wrong.
    But yeah- don't think you can refreeze otherwise :/

    Ugh.

    Does it still have ice in it? If it is still slushy, then you can refreeze, if it is 100% thawed, liquid, then you need to use it or toss it.

    Personally, I wouldn't chance it. You don't know how long it's been fully thawed and what type of bacteria has started to grow :(.

    I know, he unplugged the deep freezer and forgot to plug it in. I was pissed, but I had a huge oversupply, so I didn't miss it too much, I was more upset about the time I put in to get it.
