Can you freeze it and can you revive when it's hard and a little old?

Hmmm...how do you revive one that's a little old? and if it's hard, is revival necessary?  Don't mine me, I'll head to my home in the corner now.

I was just curious if it was possible. I hate to throw away when it can be saved.

I was just being nasty, but then I'm an old lady!

You must be craving chocolate and bubbly--corner time!

...and I live in the corner.  Almost always some sin to be rebuked, and when there isn't, I just content myself with the chocolates and bubbly.

And it's a fine place to be!

Is that wishful thinking? ;-)

I had a tube of Almond Paste that was hard and a little old and I ended up grating it and it was just fine in the cookies I made.

But, but, it's SUPPOSED to taste like that!

Thank you ...I did grate the paste. However, parts of it were really hard and i threw it away.

Would it soften up if you microwaved it for 20 seconds or so?

I would imagine that old almond paste could be rancid. Take a good sniff before you use it.

A few years ago I made almond paste using a recipe I found here.  I thought I made one without egg, but I can't find one now, so I don't know which recipe I used.  But it was good.  I froze what I didn't need.  I know I used some out of the freezer once or twice with no problem.  I also remember taking some out of the freezer that was very hard.  I worked at cutting it up into small pieces.  I suppose I could have then used the food processor to break it up further, but I didn't.  I used it as is.  The cake (I think it was the FC cranberry bundt cake) was good with little chunks of almond paste here and there.  For a family dessert it was fine.


When I froze it, I wrapped it in 7 oz. pieces, which I think is the size of the ones you buy.
