Set your freezer to -18C, wrap up your food nice and tight, and some of it will keep for two whole years. It's a bit like a time machine

When it comes to the whys and wherefores of freezing, it's worth sticking to a few guidelines. So, how long will food happily sit there in your freezer? Once frozen to -18 C foods can be stored for months on end. But, if you keep food for longer than is generally suggested, the chances are you'll find the food, once thawed, has less flavour and the texture may be less than perfect.
