They don't freeze well. They lose their crunch.

I have never tried to freeze them just by themselves (straight from the can) as we usually just buy a small can and dump the entire contents into the dish.

I have frozen them as part of a cooked dish in the RARE (but it has happened) occurrence I have had leftover Chinese food.

They aren't quite as crunchy (not mushy, just not quite as noisy a chew) when I reheat for lunch...but they are still flavorful.


I guess it is just your preference. It is safe to freeze is just your texture preference when you defrost.

I freeze leftovers in plastic containers...which I know I need to stop doing as they are probably leeching all kinds of bad things into my body when I reheat my leftovers.

Ideally, things should be frozen in glass that goes from freezer to microwave....I am still hunting them at tag sales and the flea because they are fairly pricey new.

The other benefit to the glass ones are you can see thru them to know what's inside if you forget to mark what's in them (I HATE when I do that).
