How long is too long - part II?

15 posts in this topic

Saw the other post about how long in the frig and thought I'd ask my question:

Went fishing Wed night, caught a nice walleye, soaked it in the frig until Thur night, realized that we would be out of town most of the weekend, so I vacumn packed it but then made the mistake of leaving the vacumn packed fish in the box with the vacumn packer with the intention of carrying both downstairs and tossing it in the freezer.

When I noticed it I was bummed, it had been sitting at room temp for 24 hours, but tossed it in the freezer and since its vacumn packed I haven't been able to use the nose test. What do you think? Edible or not?

I'd be hesitant. As mentioned, bacteria grow fast at room temperature and vacuum packing doesn't remove all bacteria.

Not going to take a chance on getting sick, will just get it out, boil the heck out of it, and feed it to my dogs. frown Then its not totally wasted.

Speaking of lutefisk. Who in their right mind decided it would be a good idea to dry fish and then soak it in lye for a couple days, making the fish so alkaline that it has a pH of 11 or 12 therefore making the fish extremely caustic, rinsing it off, and then deciding it was worth eating?????

Makes one wonder about them Nordic people. Did I say that out loud here in the middle of Minnesota's little Norway? Geese, I hope my neighbors aren't reading this! grin

I hear you Sparce, they used to do lutefisk at that place in Atwater, now they changed hands and don't do it. Mom is checking the VFW in Litch, they used to do it, I'll let you know what I find out. Otherwise Vinje on election night or up at Peace Lutheran in Sunburg, but they're already passed.

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
