Frozen Brussels Sprouts?

I froze some Brussels sprouts without blanching. Can they be saved?

Yes, but use them within the next couple of weeks.

Indeed they can be saved. Just make sure they are properly sealed with the least amount of air to prevent freezer burn. Brussel sprouts tend to burn easily.

Yes but the cook time will be a little longer.

Of course. Unblanched veggies have a much longer freezer life than originally supposed. I never blanch mine, but they are not kept for longer than a few months, and I've never found any problem.

I love to just wash, dry and package Brussels sprouts, cabbage and sliced/diced onions. All of these seem to do well without blanching and are ready to cook in very short time.

It does seem that my Brussels sprouts lose some of their color but the taste is still very good.
How long will they keep in the freezer?
I have found that my veggies stay "fresher" when placed in my true freezer instead of my refrigerator freezer. I believe this is due to being able to keep my freezer at a true 0 degree temperature and my refrigerator freezer door is opened more often and thus temperature fluctuates and may not stay at the same degree all the time. I just try to use my veggies within two months after freezing.

I tend to use freezer bags most of the time so I try to dry veggies well and remove as much air from bags as possible, then just date and keep putting newer bags behind the older ones. I very seldom have lost veggies when following this method.

If you defrost them to find they have gone mushy watery or disintegrated you could chop them to use in soups

Yes Ma'am, they can. Commercial packers don't blanch Brussels sprouts before freezing. Do keep them as air tight as possible.

Yes. You may lose something in the appearance or taste department if they stay frozen too long.

Yes, my answer would be to use them in soups or stews!

I am só concerned. The brussel sprouts are 10 days frozen. As I was taking it out, its appearance looks not good. They were firm and fresh when placed in the refrigerator.

What kind of sick can happen to us? May I still use it, please and thank you. Any info would help me because I took it out to prepare for dinner

Prepare the Brussels sprouts by easing them, make an "x" in the root end, blanch in simmering salted water for about 2 minutes, immediately remove sprouts and plunge into a bowl of ice water, drain and put into freezer bags and place in freezer.
