My banana mash was out of the freezer long enough for the outside layer of mash to thaw. The center and main chunk stayed frozen. So I put it back in the freezer. Do you think I could still thaw it totally out and use it to bake?

My mother and my home ec teacher both said that if the majority of the frozen food was still frozen, it was safe to use. I received this advice 50 plus years ago when in junior high school, and have followed it ever since with no ill effects.


Hope this helps.
