Now that we are eating healthier whole foods, I need to be able to freeze some meals when I have time to cook for those days when I don't have time, and to be able to stock up on some seasonal produce. The problem with all of this is that I don't have much freezer space. I normally freeze soups and liquids in containers, but those take up so much more room. I decided to try out a tip I found for freezing in bags and it worked like a charm!
First cool your food in the refrigerator. Once it has cooled you're ready to start filling your bags. Don't forget to go ahead and label the bag first. It's much easier that way. (That's for the benefit of myself- I'm one of those people who forgets things like that.)
Next, set your bag in a large measuring cup or upright container. Place a wide mouth funnel in the bag.
Fill 'er up!
Wow, that was easy. Once your bags are filled, lay them on a baking sheet to freeze so they will freeze nice and flat.
Once frozen, they will stack nicely or stand sideways if necessary.
