Refreezing Pork

I have 5lbs of frozen ground pork butt to use in the B2 exercises. I don`t want to use it all in one batch. The USDA (see link) says that frozen pork thawed in the refrigerator does not need to be cooked before refreezing. That sounds perfect for what I want to do. My wife says no way but what do yo...

B2

I'm signed on but I'm a little nervouse about expectations by CW and others. We are seniors feeding ourselves and occasionally guests. I'm aware of the 3 month time line for keeping frozen sausages and am hoping to keep control of my production accordingly.
