Arancini

Arancini are indulgent, traditional Italian rice balls made from leftover risotto. They are typically crammed full of savoury mozzarella cheese, peas, and a meat ragu, then covered in breadcrumbs and deep-fried to a golden and crispy perfection. These portable bitesize treats are perfect for any occasion. Whether it's for a dinner party appetizer, a picnic snack, or a family movie night, Arancini satisfies cravings for something wholesome and delicious. They can be served with a side of marinara sauce for dipping or eaten as they are. The light outer crunch followed by the creamy, comforting risotto interior makes them delightfully irresistible.

Expiration & Storage Tips
When does Arancini expire?
Homemade arancini, an Italian treat of deep-fried rice balls, should ideally be consumed within 1 to 2 days for optimum freshness, but can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5-7 days. If commercially packed and unopened, it can be stored until the printed date on the package. Once opened, consume within 1-2 days. Freezing arancini is also a common household scenario. After cooking, allow them to cool completely, wrap each in plastic wrap, then store in a freezer bag for up to three months. When ready to enjoy, thaw in the refrigerator overnight and heat in an oven preheated to 350F (175C) for 15-20 minutes, or until heated through.
How do you tell if Arancini is bad?
Spoiled arancini might have a sour or off smell, have visible mold, or feel slimy to touch. It's also common for bad arancini to lose its distinctive flavor and become bland or off-tasting. If it shows any of these signs, it's best to throw it out and make a new batch.
Tips for storing Arancini to extend shelf life
• Always refrigerate leftover arancini as soon as possible. Leaving them out at room temperature for too long can lead to faster spoilage. • Avoid storing them in the door of the fridge, as the temperature is less consistent there. • If freezing, wrap each arancini in plastic wrap and then place in a freezer bag. This prevents freezer burn and keeps them at their best quality. • Allow arancini to cool completely before storing, as putting hot food in the fridge can lower the temperature of the fridge and potentially spoil other food.
