Each year a local Baptist church holds a chicken pie sale. Usually they are terrific and I buy several to give to my children and for quick meals for my wife and me. This year I bought 10.
When I got them home and started to vacuum seal them for long-term freezing, I noticed that 8 of the 10 had signs of freezer burn. Three were severe enough to have turned the top crust snow white over half and dried out the crust enough to produce large cracks. The person in charge of the project stated it was flour but I quickly shut him down. The one we cooked that night was dry as a bone. Not up to their usual standards.
The pies were supposed to have been made 10 days prior, stored in white pie boxes and placed in their walk-in freezer.
My question to the experts; is 10 days enough to produce this kind of freezer burn or do you believe we get some of last years batch?
If it wasn't a church, I would find someone to report this to. Anyhow, I am returning them this morning.
