FREEZING & STORING FROZEN
The freezer section is designed
for storage of com-
mercially
frozen foods and for freezing
foods
at
home.
Packaglng
-The secret of successful freezing is in
the packaging.
The wrap
you use must be air,
moisture and vapor proof. The way you close and seal
the package
mcrst not allow air, moisture orvapor
in or
out. Packaging
done in any other way could cause
food odor
and taste transfer
throughout
the re-
frigerator and drying of frozen food.
Rigid polyethylene
(plastic)
containers
with tight-
fitting
lids, straight-sided
canning/freezing
jars,
heavy-duty
aluminum
foil, plastic-coated
paper and
non-permeable
plastic
wraps
[such as Saran) are
recommended.
Note: Heat-sealed
boiling bags are
easy to use and can be used by themselves
01 as
carton liners.
Sealing-
When sealing
foods in bugs squeeze
out the air (liquids
need headspace
to allow
for
expansion.)
Twist the top and turn it back. Fasten tie
securely around the doubled-over
tail. Put the label
inside transparent
bugs; use self-adhesive
label on
outside of opaque
ones.

Freezing
Fruits-Select
ripe, blemish-free
fruits.
Air-tight wrapping
culls for "drugstore"
