Stuff every freezer cook should know.
Flash Freeze – You’ll hear me say this.. This method use to freeze food items individually. Here’s an example of Flash Freeze. Lets say we are making meatballs, you’ll roll each meatball, place them on a baking sheet that has been lined with wax paper and place the baking sheet in the freezer until all the meatballs are frozen.
Get the Air Out – You’ll hear me say this… This method is used to remove all of the air in your storage container. Air is the enemy when you’re freezing foods.
Foods that should not be frozen
- raw potatoes
- sour cream
- eggs in their shell, whole hard cooked eggs
