Although the thought is repulsive to some, frog legs are considered a delicacy. These delicious legs have a mild taste that resembles the taste of a chicken wing. Frog legs can be prepared in a variety of ways, such as grilling or frying. If you are lucky enough to find frog legs at your local grocery store, you will want to know the best ways to store them so they don’t go bad.

Place your frog legs in your refrigerator in their original container as soon as you get home. Cook them within a few days.

Place your frog legs in their unopened container in the freezer if you don’t plan on eating them within three days. They will keep for up to three months.

Cook your frog legs and then wrap the leftovers in tinfoil. For short-term storage, place the leftovers in the refrigerator for up to two days.

For long-term storage, place your cooked frog legs in a freezer bag. Make sure you remove as much of the air in the bag as you can, then zipper it shut. Place a date on the bag and then set it in the freezer. The frog legs will last up to three months when stored this way.


  • You can use an airtight container to store your frog legs if you do not have tinfoil or freezer bags.

  • Frog legs taste great alongside fish or with a side of macaroni and cheese.
