Full Answer

An immersion blender can also be used to mix together a milk-based soup that has separated.

Before freezing milk-based soups, the soups should first be cooled rapidly in shallow containers. Once cool, the containers can be sealed and labeled, and the soups can be stored in the freezer. The soups can be thawed in the refrigerator overnight before heating and serving.

    How can you tell if beef is spoiled?

    A:

    Beef that is spoiled will start to turn gray or brown in color, have a slimy feel and will smell sour. Once beef starts to lose its reddish color, it is best to throw it away to practice proper hygiene. Even if the beef is not completely spoiled by the time it turns brown, the taste of the meat will be different and often less enjoyable to eat.
