Expiration & Storage Tips
When does Eggplant Parmesan expire?
The shelf life of Eggplant Parmesan really depends on the specifics of storage and how it is prepared. Unopened, commercially prepared Eggplant Parmesan can last in the refrigerator for 2-3 days past the printed date on its package. If well stored, homemade Eggplant Parmesan can serve you for about 5-7 days in the refrigerator. Once opened, Eggplant Parmesan should be eaten within about 2-3 days. You can also freeze Eggplant Parmesan for up to 6 months, although it might slightly affect the taste and consistency
How do you tell if Eggplant Parmesan is bad?
When Eggplant Parmesan has gone bad, it usually changes color with a white or gray mold typically growing on the surface. The smell may also turn sour or putrid. If kept for a long period, the sauce might separate and the cheese may become hard or slimy. In such cases, don't taste it, just discard it
Tips for storing Eggplant Parmesan to extend shelf life
• Always use airtight containers for storage to prevent odors from the refrigerator permeating into your Eggplant Parmesan. • Divide Eggplant Parmesan into meal-sized portions before freezing for easy defrosting and to avoid refreezing. • When freezing, be sure to label the containers with the date to help you keep track of its storage life. • Finally, when you're ready to use frozen Eggplant Parmesan, defrost it in the refrigerator overnight rather than at room temperature to maintain the best texture and flavor
