How To Properly Store Food For The Freezer

We get it — taking extra time to unwrap and rewrap food for the freezer after a long grocery trip can be a pain. But you’ll be glad you did it when you’re not forced to cook an entire package of chicken breasts that have all frozen together, when all you wanted was one or two pieces.

Below are some tips on how to store food in the freezer to prevent freezer burn, moisture loss and food poisoning and to protect the food you buy.

Tip #1: If you do not plan on using the frozen meat you bought within a month, you’ll need to repackage it. The Styrofoam package it comes in is not ideal for long-term freezing, as it won’t hold up well to the freezer temperatures.

Tip #2: Don’t freeze food that is nearing an expiration date. Popping it in the freezer won’t magically make it edible again — in fact, it will come out worse than before, and you’ll probably throw it out anyway.
