Hey everyone,

I'm just wondering if its safe to use ganache that's already been warmed in the microwave and then put back in the fridge after i was done covering my cake, or do I have to throw it away? Also how long would it be safe for? Thanks heaps.

I heat ganache and then store it covered with tight lid in fridge for a week no problem.  I will freeze leftover ganache right after making then let it thaw , rewhip and use...works great.  I love having it in freezer ready to pull out for an emergency.

 

I don't know the actual length of time it can stay in fridge (max time)  Anyone know???

AThanks sewsugarqueen, I didn't know you could freeze it! That would be so good to have an emergency stash! It would be great to know the max time you can keep it in the fridge, I keep seeing mixed answers. Some say 1 week, others say 2 and a few have said 4! My brain is under much confusion! ( this could also be due to the fact of the time it is in great land of oz! I so need to get to sleep! )

I certainly hope so, as I have a bowl of ganache left over from my cheesecake in the fridge right now.  However I couldn't say how long it would last, as it always gets either used up or eaten with a spoon.....:P
