With all cookies I've been making for Christmas & vegetables I have to much of from our CSA, I've been freezing a lot lately. It seems though that I've been getting freezer burn really quickly on my meats & vegetables. We'll I don't have that problem anymore since we got the Ziploc Vacuum Bags. Target had the starter kit with the pump & two sizes of bags on sale so we picked one up to try.
Look at the difference in these two pieces of flank steak that had been frozen for only a week! We like to buy meat when its on sale & freeze it & now I feel like it will be kept at its best.
This system works so easily, you just put the pump over the special vent on the bags, pump a few times until the air is gone & your done. Plus its so much cheaper than a electric vacuum sealer. I even wash the bags & use them again which makes it even a better value.
