TURKEY AND HAM
Sydney chef Travis Harvey advises carving all turkey and ham from the bone after Christmas to ensure it stays fresh.
As long as they are carved shortly after cooking, slices of turkey and ham can be stored in the freezer in a container for up to three months, Mr Harvey says in a post for OzHarvest.
PRAWNS AND SEAFOOD
To make prawns last longer, peel them before storing in the freezer for up to three months, according to Mr Harvey.
You could also put prawns into rice paper rolls and freeze those for a quick meal when you fancy it.
If a cake has been iced after it has cooled, that can help increase its shelf-life by cutting down on moisture loss and preventing it from going stale.
Love Food Hate Waste advises wrapping cakes tightly in clingfilm or foil to remove any air before freezing.
Frozen cakes with icing will last for about three months and for six months without icing.
Soft cheeses, like Camembert, should be stored in waxed cheese paper or baking paper.
Blue cheese can be wrapped in foil, but remember to change the foil every few days as acidity will attack the foil.
If you bought far too many eggs to Christmas baking, but didn't end up using them all, not to worry. The easiest way to store them is in the fridge in the carton they came in.
But if your want to store for longer, eggs can be frozen too.
Freeze the eggs in small amounts of one or two and they should keep for up to 10 months.
