I saw this idea in Real Simple Magazine, and it makes a lot of sense.
If you buy mince in a large quantity, intending to freeze it – but do not want to use it all at once, try this…
Drape half of a large piece of cling film over your chopping board.
Now take a chopstick, and by pressing down firmly, use it to mark the mince into regular blocks, to so it looks something like a block of chocolate. Freeze it, and wrap in a couple more layers of cling film.
Now when you come to use it, it will be easy to snap off a few chunks for the recipe. Simples!
