Double Bag to Prevent Freezer Burn

I love using zip lock bags for freezing meats and sauces, but do not like the expense. I also double the bags when freezing to prevent freezer burn. So, I first put the sauce or meat into a recycled plastic or waxed bag, and close it with tape or twist tie. Then, I put the bagged food into the zip lock. By doing it this way, I'm able to reuse the zip lock over and over again.

Great idea! One more use I can put all those plastic grocery bags to. Not to mention bread bags and cereal box wax paper. Thanks! (09/05/2009)

Just make sure the recycled bag has never contained any meat products before. Otherwise, you can risk getting food poisoning. Take it from one who knows, it's a lot cheaper to buy bags, than to pay for a trip to E.R. :-( (01/20/2010)
