Tips for Freezing Foods
Some foods freeze better than others. Examples of foods that freeze well include soups, stews, casseroles, fruits and some vegetables. Avoid foods with cornstarch- or flour-thickened sauces and dairy products (except for cheese).
- Use containers and bags designed for the freezer to ensure quality.
- Do not freeze anything that has been previously frozen. If meat is taken out of the freezer and thawed, cook it then freeze.
- Lay freezer bags flat to maximize freezer space.
- Label foods placed in freezer including date when food was frozen.
