can you freeze liverwurst??

Bought a pound "log"... on sale. That's a LOT of liverwurst for on person to eat. Can it be frozen... successfully??

  1. Yes, nice and tight with plastic wrap and it will last several months in the deep freezer.

      Way longer than that. When I am in the vicinity of the only supermarket here that sells it, I buy Schaller & Weber liver pate (as they now call it - it was labeled liverwurst when I was growing up in NY) and freeze whole logs. Just put each in a zipper baggie. Because it is fatty, it is easy to slice even when frozen. I cut off what I need, then cover the cut end and return to the bag and freezer. I have had unopened ones in the freezer for over 6 months with no deterioration in quality.

    2. Yup. I've done that many times. Taste and texture were unaffected. :)
