I bought a container of mozzarella balls marinated in olive oil, roasted red pepper, and basil. I forgot to put them on the Christmas day appetizer platter and it turns out that we will be unable to go to the NYE party that we had planned on, so I won't get rid of them there, either. I notice that the container indicates to "use by 1-7-07". If I can't find any other way to use these things before then, can they be frozen? In the oil or separately? And how will the texture be, after they are thawed? Thanks!
