Many years ago, My mother told me to never re freeze meat that had been previuosly frozen, Unless it is cooked first.
I'm not sure whether she meant it was unsafe, or that it took away from the flavor of the meats, etc. I was talking to my 83 year old sister in law yesterday, her and her husband used to have their own meat market and worked most of there working life with meat.
She said she thaws & re freezes meat quite often as now as a widow, she only needs parts of the packages she buys. She suggest that the only reason she could think of not to refreeze is that once meat thaws, blood & fluids run out of the meat and the meat that is refroze might be dry.
Can some one enlighten me and any others that may have this same question. I'm hoping Pops can give his answer to this as well.
Thank you all
