FREEZING & STORING FROZEN
FOODS
The freezer section IS desrgned
for storage of com-
mercrclly
frozen foods
and for freezing
foods
at
home.
Packaging
-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
must not allow air, moisture or vapor 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
cannrng/freezrng
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
or as
carton liners.
Sealing-
When sealing
foods In bags squeeze
out the air (liquids
need headspace
to allow
for
expansion.)
Twrst the top and turn it back. Fasten tie
securely around the doubled-over
tall. Put the label
Inside transparent
bags; use self-adhesive
label on
outside of opaque
ones.
Air-tight wrapping
calls for "drugstore"
wrap. Cut
the sheet about one-third
longer than the distance
around the food. Bring the ends together
and fold in
(toward the food) at least twice to seal out air Crease
ends close to food, press air from package.
Fold tips
over twrce
Finish package
and tape closed
NOTE
Wtth unboned
meats, pad sharp edges
with extra
wrap
or use stockrnette
to protect
the wrap from
punctures.
DO NOT USE:
l
Bread wrappers
l
Non-polyethylene
plastic containers
l
Containers
without tight lids
l
Waxed paper
l
Waxed-coated
freezer wrap
l
Thin, semi-permeable
wrap
None of these are totally moisture, air or vapor
proof. The use of these wrappings
could
cause
food odor and taste transfer
and
drying
of frozen food.
Freezing
Fruits - Select ripe, blemish-free
fruits.
Be sure they taste as good as they look. Wash 2 to
3 quarts (Inters) at a time and dram. Fruit that stands
in water may lose food value and become,
soggy.
Sort, peel. tram, pit and sltce as needed.
Pack in rrgtd wide-mouthed
containers
or other
recommended
material.
Leave head space to ol-
low liquids to expand
during freezing.
