Preparing Fruit for Vacuum Sealing
Soft or delicate fruits and berries of all kinds should be individually pre-frozen
for 1 to 2 hours until solidly frozen before vacuum sealing in bags. For example,
slice stone fruits (peaches, plums, nectarines, etc.) and place slices on a cookie sheet
and freeze, then place solidly frozen pieces in bag to vacuum seal.
Berries can be individually frozen as above before vacuum sealing in a bag
then freezing or vacuum-sealed fresh in a FreshGuard ™ canister and stored
in refrigerator.

Preparing Other Foods for Vacuum Sealing
Baked goods (breads, rolls, cakes, pastries, bagels) should always be pre-frozen
for 1 to 2 hours before vacuum sealing. Pre-freezing prevents baked goods from
collapsing when the vacuum sealing process takes place.
When vacuum-sealing foods like soups and stews that are liquid-based,
pre-freeze in a shallow casserole or pan that has been sprayed with non-stick
cooking spray. The frozen food can then be easily removed from the container
and placed in an appropriate sized bag.

Preparing Foods for Marinating
Marinating is a great way to tenderize a less expensive cut of meat, and give
added flavor to meats, poultry, fish and vegetables.
The Black & Decker
®
Professional-Performance Vacuum System offers you two
ways to have tender, flavorful meats, poultry and fish and flavor-infused
vegetables and salads—and now it can be done in minutes, not hours.
For larger pieces of meat, poultry or fish, use the 8-inch (21 cm) or 11-inch
(28 cm) wide rolls to prepare a custom-sized bag. Place the food and marinade
in bag and vacuum seal. Place in refrigerator for 30 to 45 minutes.
For cubes of meat, poultry or fish, or for marinated vegetables or salads use the
appropriate size canister for the amount of food and marinade.
Always place marinating food, whether in canister or bags, in the refrigerator until
ready to cook or eat.
