Can you freeze creme patissiere?
Simply so, can pastry cream be frozen?
Shelf life: If it is being baked as a component of Danish or rustic tarts, then shelf life is 5 days. Pastry cream cannot be frozen because gelled starch breaks down during the freezing and thawing process. The cream will weep moisture, and it will not have the same consistency as it had before freezing.
Secondly, how long does creme patissiere last in fridge? 3 days
Consequently, what can I do with leftover creme patissiere?
- It's used to fill classic profiteroles and sometimes cream puffs.
- To fill chocolate eclairs.
- As filling for cakes, like Boston cream pie.
- Filling for fruit tarts.
- To make mille feuille.
- To make vanilla pudding or chocolate pudding.
Can you freeze confectioners custard?
Custard does not freeze well, it has a tendency to separate. If you do freeze it, freeze it right away, leave it frozen for as little time as possible, and defrost it in the refrigerator. I wouldn't leave it in the freezer for more than a month. One way to freeze custard and get great results is to make ice cream!
