    Frost bitten Roe leg

    Hi, The g'friend was cleaning out the old freezer yesterday and found a leg at the bottom that I had forgotten was there It has been in there at least a year and is slightly frost bitten in places, question is: safe to eat?

    Yes, as long as well cooked.
    To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

    Ha ha reminds me of a mate that on being asked by another mate " mate have you got any spare venison" ah yes i have he he gave him a leg of feral goat that seemingly Captain Scott had in the Antarctic it was that burnt and told him "here mate here is a leg of a Hog deer" By all reports it was eaten and enjoyed.
    "you nae be needing these no more"
    I said as I slipped the knife through the cord

    Should be safe to eat, best thing to is trip the burnt bits as they well very spongy and tough.

    I'm ok wi marinades & slow cooking .... It's the roasts / roasting that I'm away to try more of... Till now it's been like voodoo to me!!

    honestly ... Slow gin yeah ... But the squirt o BBQ sauce that does it for me.. Yum !

    Just did batch o burgers where just added pork belly and some red currant jelly out of a jar

    just look in your cupboard see what stands out at you and chuck some in

    ps let us know what you do with it be how it turns out

    frozen meat is safe to eat if prepared properly in the first place.
    but quality and flavour may suffer after 6 to 12 months storage
    ​especial;y if poorly wrapped
