STORING
FROZEN FOOD
NOTE: For further
information
about preparing
food
for
freezing
or food
storage times, check a freezer guide
or a
reliable
cookbook.
Packaging
Successful freezing
depends
on correct
packaging.
When you
close and seal the package,
it must not allow air or moisture in
or out. If proper
care is not given during packaging,
you could
have food odor and taste transfer
throughout
the refrigerator
and also dry out frozen food.
Packaging recommendations:
° Rigid plastic containers
with tight-fitting
lids.
° Straight-sided
canning/freezing
jars.
° Heavy-duty
aluminum
foil.
° Plastic-coated
paper.
° Non-permeable
plastic wraps.
° Specified
freezer-grade
self-sealing
plastic
bags.
Follow package
or container
instructions
for proper
freezing
methods.
_0
not
use:
° Bread wrappers.
° Non-polyethylene
plastic containers.
° Containers
without
tight lids.
° Wax
paper or wax-coated
freezer wrap.
° Thin, semi-permeable
wrap.
FREEZING
Your freezer wiii not quick-freeze
any large quantities
of food.
Do not put more unfrozen
food into the freezer than will freeze
within 24 hours (no more than 2 to 3 ibs 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 (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
ice crystals.
NOTE: Allow hot foods to cool at room temperature
for 30
minutes, then package
and freeze.
Cooling
hot foods before
freezing
saves energy.
NOTE:
Do not store food near the sensor; it may cause the
sensor to malfunction.
