I bought a 50# box of HR shortening several mons. ago. I've kept it in the original box until today. I measured it in 1 cup portions & placed them in large freezer bags. Can I keep them in the freezer?
I'll be having a baby soon & need the extra pantry space. Plus, I don't think I'll be making any cakes for the next few months.

Yep, as long as it is still good! I have a ton of HR in my freezer now, brick-hard, and it's as fresh...well, as fresh as shortening can the day I bought it!

If it has a funny smell to it, then it's already starting to go rancid. Then it's time to dump or mix up bird seed in it for the birds when its zero degrees outside. icon_biggrin.gif
