Can I freeze leftover gravy?

Asked by augustlan (47394points) May 2nd, 2009

My husband made a delicious mushroom & onion gravy with pork chop drippings tonight. There is at least a cup left, but I’m afraid we won’t use it in the next few days. Will it separate if I freeze it? Any special instructions for thawing it later on?

Yes, my Mah used to do it and it tasted just fine once thawed. Sorry, can’t help you with special instructions, though..

It will freeze just fine, and to thaw it out, put in the microwave at half-power or less for a couple of minutes, or in a pan on the stove at very low heat.

Mmmm…pork chop drippings… :P

I freeze my gravy all the time now that I’m single. I put it in the fridge in the morning and let it thaw by dinnertime.

Yes, you can. If it does separate, just whisk it back together while reheating.

Thanks everyone. I’m glad we’ll get to enjoy the yummy goodness another day. :D

I do it every weekend and have it later in the week. It will actually taste better the second round. I guess all the seasonings combine better over time
