Freezing Chocolates & Confections

Recommended Posts

escry   

I have successfully frozen and defrosted a dual layer ganache and pate de fruit enrobed confection.

Just follow usual rules of 1) tight packing and suitable wrapping; 2) put in the fridge for 12-24 hours then into the freezer on the way in; 3) put in the fridge for 12-24 hours from frozen on the way out.

Andrew Shotts freezes, and in his book he makes lots of pate de fruits. Maybe sote23 could answer for sure though, as he went to his class.

I use a foodsaver to vacuum seal and buy the bags off ebay. Works great for me on the standard-type chocolates that I make. Same technique as you - stopping before 100% vacuum to prevent crushing. Works great, most useful for condensation control.

      I'm watching The Sweet Makers on BBC - four British pastry chefs & confectioners recreate Tudor, Georgian, and Victorian sweets with petiod ingredients and equipment. A little British Baking Show, a little Downtown Abbey. 
       
      Check it it out for a slice of pastry history. 
       
      BBC viewer only available to the U.K., but on this side of the pond where there's a will, there's a way.

      Hello! I was wondering if anyone on here has tried using an induction cooktop with confection making (caramels, fondant, marshmallows ect...). My stove has literally three settings, and the low setting still burns sugar and there is no such thing as maintaining any sort of "simmer". I was looking into getting a cooktop and buying some copper sugar pots and mauviel makes this thing that goes inbetween. I would love to hear any input into this idea or your experiences!

      Hi All,
       
      I think this is a long shot, but I'll put it out there. I'm wondering if anyone in the Greater Vancouver area has an EZ Temper that they would be willing and able to loan/rent out for a couple days or up to a week? I am super curious to try it out and if the results are as wonderful as I expect I'm hoping I can find it in the business budget.
