FREEZING & STORING FROZEN
FOODS
.,i,
_/ ., .

_
The freezer section is designed
for storage of com-
mercially
frozen foods and for freezrng
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-
frrgerator and drying of frozen food.
Rigid polyethylene
[plastic)
containers
with tight-
fitting
lids, straight-sided
canning/freezing
jars,
heavy-duty
aluminum
forl, 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 aliow for
expansion.)
Twist the top and turn It back. Fasten tie
securely around the doubled-over
tail. 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.
