Lobster Stock - Urgent Help Required

hungry_pangolin | Aug 24, 2009 11:53 AM

Due to an electrical black out, yesterday I had to cook or throw out the entire contents of the freezer compartment of my fridge. I had the cooked shells of six lobsters, which I turned into stock.

The problems:
(1) When I began the stock, the shells were cool, but certainly not cold. The time elapsed between power failure and beginning the stock was approximately 30 hours.

(2) I fell asleep while one pot was cooling (cooking five separate dishes as quickly as possible was exhausting work)... with some lobster shlls in the pot! (I had removed the shells from the other pot.) I removed the shells from the 'shell pot this morning. Both are currently in the fridge awaiting decanting into freezer vessels.

Should I toss the pot with the shells? Should I toss both?

Thanks in advance, and Ciao, 'hounds.
