When freezing vegetables, it is best to pre-freeze
them for 1-2 hours or until solidly frozen. To freeze
vegetables in individual servings, first place on
a baking sheet and spread them out so they are
not touching. This prevents them from freezing
together in a block. Once they are frozen, remove
from baking sheet and vacuum package vegetables
in a FoodSaver
Bag. After they have been vacuum
®
packaged, return them to the freezer.
IMPORTANT: Due to the risk of anaerobic bacteria,
fresh mushrooms, onions, & garlic should never
be vacuum packaged.
