In a recent thread about the pros and cons of having a garbage disposal, food gone bad was discussed. annkh freezes bad stew until garbage day. I thought, yuck. Last week we had temps in the 90s. I decided to cook chicken and had a pile of raw thigh skin and bones. The garbage had just been collected that day and the thought of all that raw chicken festering in the garbage can was revolting. I remembered the great stew-gone-bad trick. So I bagged up all the chicken leavings and stuck them in the freezer until Tuesday morning. So brilliant!
My kitchen whiteboard has the reminder: "Frozen garbage."
Edited to add: While I'm in the pro-GD camp, I do NOT put raw chicken skin through it.
