Inside the Kitchen

Your guide to creating meal magic every day - from cooking to baking to entertaining for any occasion.

We've all been there. There's a huge sale on meats or fish at the market and we over buy. Rather than let it go bad, we freeze it. But, what is the best way to freeze so that you buy pass the ick factor of freezer burn or the possibility of your food going bad? The key is a mix of heavy-duty tinfoil and freezer bags.

As soon as I get home from the store, I divide my meat into portion sizes. Then, I put aside the meat that I know I will use during the week and freeze the rest. I wrap the portions into the heavy-duty tinfoil and then place each into freezer bags. On the bag, I write the date and the type of food so when I pull it out later on there will be no surprises.

Moms, how do you make sure your frozen foods stay fresh?

I like to use the Hefty freezer bags and I always write on the outside what the contents are and the date they were frozen.

I really want to get a vaccum sealer.  What kind do you have?

I divide them into portion sizes in freezer bags.  I haven't ever used foil.  I use it before it has a chance at getting bad.

I wrap in foil and freezer bags. Make sure you date and use FIFO

We portion them out, and put them in freezer bags.
