be re-frozen after it has been cooked.
Frozen goods can be defrosted in differ-

- In an oven using "Fan heat" or the
"Defrost" setting
- At room temperature
- In the refrigerator zone (the cold
given off by the frozen food helps to
keep the other food cold)
- In a steam oven

or fish can be placed directly into a hot
frying pan.
Meat and poultry (e.g. mince, chicken,
fish fillets) should not come into contact

Fruit should be defrosted at room tem-
perature in its packaging, or in a
covered bowl.
Most vegetables can be cooked while
still frozen. Just put straight into boiling
