STORING FROZEN FOOD
NOTE: Check a freezer guide or a reliable cookbook for
further information about preparing food for freezing or
food storage times.
Your freezer will not quick-freeze a large quantity of
food. Do not put more unfrozen food into the freezer
than will freeze within 24 hours (no more than 2 to 3
lbs. of food per cubic foot of freezer space). Leave
enough space in the freezer for air to circulate around
packages. Be careful to leave enough room at the
front so the door can close tightly.
Storage times will vary according to the quality and
type of food, the type of packaging or wrap used
(how airtight and moisture-proof) and the storage
temperature. Ice crystals inside a sealed package are
normal. This simply means that moisture in the food
and air inside the package have condensed, creating
NOTE: Allow hot foods to cool at room temperature
for 30 minutes, then package and freeze. Cooling hot
foods before freezing saves energy.
Successful freezing depends on correct packaging.
When you close and seal the package, it must not
allow air or moisture in or out. If it does, you could
have food odor and taste transfer throughout the
refrigerator and could also dry out frozen food.
