Help! My sour cream accidentally froze.....
- jenscats5 Dec 24, 2010 07:55 AM
I was going to make a spinach dip with it and when I pulled it out of the fridge it is frozen solid!
Can I still use it for my dip? I don't have anything else to bake at this point....
Generally speaking, frozen sour cream separates when frozen and thawed. It is possible to whisk it and reconstitute it to some degree but it will never have the same texture or flavor. However, greygarious makes a good point. In your circumstances, if you're using cheese as an added ingredient in your spinach dip, you might get away with it.
On the other hand, if you're not ready for the possibility of failure, dump it and go get some fresh sour cream.
I am definitely mixing with mayo & I have some Greek yogurt I can add as well.....thanks for all the tips!!
