It is always fun cooking a huge feast for your family and friends. But, when there’s too much to eat in a single sitting, you need to find a way to preserve it so it can be enjoyed time and time again until it’s all gone.
You either have to eat it all fast…or freeze it. While your food may be too delicious to put down, don’t get sick trying to eat it all just to prevent it from going bad!
Our friendly team at APlasticBag.com did some research to find the very best ways to package frozen food. Some of the more traditional methods of freezing food may not actually be the best way to guarantee that your food will last to be just as good as the day you cooked it.
Here are some of our favorite frozen food packaging methods.
1. The Tupperware
Plastic boxes and lids are abundant at any home or supplies store, and they come in a variety of sizes and shapes. Some are disposable, some are reusable, and some are made with special materials.
The Spruce Eats recommends glass storage containers or plastic boxes with rubber-fitting lids so you can keep your food airtight.
2. Glass Jars
If you’ve ever purchased pickled vegetables, jams, or applesauce, odds are you have a few glass jars or mason jars lying around. Instead of throwing them away or leaving them to collect dust in the pantry, you can use them as frozen food packaging.
Just remember to leave enough headspace in the jars, since the temperature may cause some of the items to expand as they freeze. You also want to make sure your lid can open and close tightly without being too frozen to budge.
3. Vacuum-Sealed Bags
In all honesty, this is one of our favorite frozen food packaging solutions! Vacuum bags are the best solution for storing frozen food and have it perfectly preserved. When you are ready to eat it again, it will taste just as fresh as the day you cooked it.
Vacuum bags are also wonderful for raw foods, such as meat and fish, if you want it to stay fresh and perfect until you’re ready to cook with it.
We just happen to have eco-friendly poly-nylon vacuum bags available for prolonged and recycled use. These are some of the few FDA and USDA-approved bags, making it easy to use them over and over again.
4. Aluminum Storage Containers
If you have a large quantity of food that you’re looking to store, you can invest in large aluminum trays that come with lids. You can find them at your local grocery store or kitchen store, and they are affordable and super easy to use. You can store a large amount of food in it, and as long as you fit the lid on tightly, you can store it in the freezer for however long you want.
Plus, they can also go in the oven when you’re ready to cook something again!
They are reusable and can be easily washed. However, if you don’t want to go through the hassle of scrubbing the caked-on bits of cooked food, you can just throw it out. They are easy enough to replace!
