STORAGE & PREPARATION

Liberated® takes great care in providing an ever-changing menu to embrace the seasonality of foods and keep your taste buds intrigued. 

We take pride and care preparing items for shipment, but do rely on customers to track their orders to ensure they are received promptly and stored appropriately.

Once your order has arrived, we want to offer some reminders and tips on how to store and prepare your items to ensure you enjoy each item at their best.

NOTE: remember that our sight, scent and touch senses are excellent indicators and should always be relied upon.

 

Crusts, Breakfast Pastries and More

These products are dated with a "Best By" frozen date and will need to be prepared appropriately to ensure the best experience possible. We suggest items be appropriately prepared and heated to an internal temperature of 165°F or greater determined by a food thermometer. We suggest reheating the following bakery items in a toaster oven to attain desired texture and even browning. 

  • Pizza Crusts (preparation instructions located on packaging)
  • Waffles (preparation instructions located on packaging)
  • Cinnamon Roll
  • Strata
  • Casserole
  • Pie Crust (preparation instructions located on packaging)
  • Sugar Cookie Kit (preparation instructions located on packaging)


In a hurry? No problem! Reheating products in the microwave will still work great, just be sure the appropriate internal temperature of 165°F.
