  • Just make sure you allow a little room for the expansion. They should be fine.

  • The jars should be fine, but the plastic ones....eh...i wouldnt, only because to me, the lid doesn't seem tight enough.

  • I used them to freeze homemade babyfood. wash/sterilize them first and let them cool slowly. Don't fill them too full because the food will expand. also let the food thaw slowly, like the day before. I used stickers and a marker to label what was in each jar and when I made it. Use the oldest first.
