I had a quick scud through my Nibblous favourites this morning for some ideas, and decided on Balsamic Duck with Cep Lentils. We have all the ingredients in - the duck breasts were in the outside freezer.
and when I went out to this frost free upright freezer, I was met with a sheet of ice - somehow, the handle of the cool bag had got caught in the door, and air was getting in. The temperature was ok, but frost free it wasn't ...
so we spent a happy hour with Pete chiselling the ice out of the freezer, and me brushing down all the contents, and cleaning and drying the drawers. Thankfully, everything seems fine.
I found a pack of Charles' Pearmaine's bacon in there, dated 2001. Wonder if it'll be alright ... :)
