A Cheaper Way To Freeze Foods
I like to buy meats and cheeses in bulk because it is cheaper. However, that is a lot of freezer bags and good freezer bags aren't cheap. Through trial and error, I have found a method that I really like. I wrap 1 pound portions of meat or cheese in plastic wrap or bag it in a sandwich bag and fit as many as I can in to a one gallon freezer bag. Plastic wrap and sandwich bags are MUCH cheaper than freezer bags and I can usually fit 4-5 pounds in a gallon freezer bag. When the freezer bags are emptied, I store the in the freezer and re-use them. I do have designated bags for each item. However, this really didn't work well with chicken. I tried it and all of the sandwich bags stuck together in the freezer bag. I guess the chicken was too wet. It may work if you patted it dry first. Sorry, I didn't not try that, but think I will the next time I buy chicken.
