Preserving food

Warning: for this post, I may sound like an infomercial. You have been warned.

Tired of wasting produce because it goes bad before you have time to eat it? You don’t need a fancy piece of eqpuiment or vacuum sealer to preserve your produce. All you need is a container of water and a plastic recloseable bag

image

Simply, fill the bag with your produce (I used a sandwich bag but freezer and gallon bags work well for larger items).

Submerge the bag in the water and slowly move the bag downward making sure all the air is coming out of the bag.

When you get close to the bag closure, zip the bag and viola!!! You will have vacuum-sealed produce without the expense of a vacuum sealer. Enjoy!!
