    I have been experimenting with various ganache recipes for filled chocolates, and want to be able to make small batches of many of the varieties I've come up with on a regular basis.

    The chocolates themselves only have a 1-2 week shelf life since I'm not using any preservatives (except for small quantities of invert sugar). I'd love to find a way to make the ganache fillings ahead of time and store them, so when I only want a few of each flavor, I'll have all varieties on hand, and can just use what I need.

    So, I guess my question is, how long will ganache keep refrigerated? Also, is it possible to freeze ganache without harming the texture or quality? If so, for how long?

    Thanks for your help!

    I answered the same question, that you posted in the pastry forum. Please try to post in only one forum, rather than multiple postings of the same question. It makes answering your question a bit easier for others, if it's in 1 place. Thanks, and welcome to cheftalk.:)
