Expiration & Storage Tips
When does Dumplings expire?
Unopened packaged dumplings can last up to their printed expiry date if kept in the refrigerator, but once opened, try to consume them within 3-4 days. If they are homemade, refrigerate them earliest possible, usually, they stay good for 2-3 days, keeping them more can make them soggy and less enjoyable. If you opt to freeze them, they can last a decent 2 months. When reheating, it's best to thaw them in the fridge overnight and then pan-fry or steam.
How do you tell if Dumplings is bad?
Bad dumplings can be identified by a nasty smell, an unusual color, or mold. Never consume dumplings which give out a pungent smell, or have spots of white, blue, or green mold. If the dumplings appear slimy or darker, it might mean they have started to go bad.
Tips for storing Dumplings to extend shelf life
• Never leave dumplings out for too long. Refrigerate or freeze them at the earliest for extended shelf life.
• To freeze dumplings, lay them out on a tray so they don't touch each other and place the tray in the freezer. Once frozen, transfer them to an airtight bag. This will save you from having a big lump of stuck together dumplings.
• It's better not to store cooked and uncooked dumplings together.
• Try using airtight containers with small compartments to store dumplings in the refrigerator. This will prevent them from clinging together.
• For a short term storage, you can keep them in a well-sealed plastic bag in the refrigerator.
