More embarrassing acknowledgments first: I have a freezer full of meat and veggies that I bought with good intentions of cooking. Other than the price tag with a date on some of the meat, how would you know if something is nasty or usable? Part of me has been looking at these sad frozen bricks so long and passing them over for fresh, that I almost say "throw 'em all out and start over carefully" I should mention that I have chronic allergies, so I am very bad at detecting subtle taste (ie, something has gone bad, freezer burn) but my DH has canine-like taste receptors! He is one to refuse to eat marked-down meat because it was one day away from expiration. I'd like to go through and eliminate what needs to be tossed without having to thaw, cook, sniff or taste. Since sniffing and tasting wouldn't really help me anyway. Any advice?
