The freezing process tends to preserve the food’s quality. If you store your food properly you can get very little freezer burn. The best way to store food is to get them the best quality plastic wrap, vacuum sealed bags, or air tight containers.
First the general rule when storing food is to cycle through the food on the shelves or on the shelves, not the order you’ve come to know, that’s why a good way to store things is to make a cycle. You don’t need to mark or put tape over the order you’ve chosen for organization sake. Begin simply with alphabetical as well as cross signify items, this will cause the items to be shunted bottom to top along with making sure they are properly balanced on top of putting them in the freezer. After this you can go on and consider bags,boxes,norriskins,salvage,canning,oodles, and any other items that you may have to offer up for deposited items.
I would also like to give you a couple of suggestions as to actually preparing foods, and I cannot stress this enough. Buy fruits and vegetables that are in season and are at least a couple of days old. The grocery store will have a 12 to 16 month date on most fruits and vegetables. And keep clean. the University of Wisconsin has taught a class on cleaned cut surfaces; it will cut your dropoff time by about 60%, cleanup is a snap and prevents bacteria from spreading. One of the greatest suggestions I have ever been given when drop off has been to use special clear freezer box(s) to collect your food in. clear freezer box allows for easy transport and will cut down on the need for a ground truck.
Will Food be Frozen?
Simply the answer is yes! You will have the best tasting food that you can ever eat. It will not be able to be frozen, but will definitely be stored and packaged. Most freezers can hold up to about 14-1/2 cubic feet of food. The best thing to do really is to buy a couple of versatile bags of bag and make sure that person or family can eat and enjoy products from the home freezer. I have found recipes such as chicken pot pie and other products to be quite popular, as well as freeze-dried camping meals, Effort baskets and a number of other products.
Bacteria and food poisoning
We have talked about bacteria being able to survive intense heat here, but bacteria can also survive freezing temperatures. In fact the top cause of food poisoning is bacterial related, and the best way to prevent this is to be aware of the source. If you treat water for example, using boiled and filtered water rather than tap water is one of the best things you can do.
acterial related illnesses can be spread though many means, and the one that is most likely to be spread is bacterial related illness caused by norovirus. This is a common disease, and many people get it without even knowing it. ending up with norovirus poisoning can be life threatening.
How can you prevent getting infected?
The best way to prevent this type of food poisoning is to be very aware of the sources of your food. Since we have talked about how important it is to be aware of bacteria in food, then it is vital that we also be aware of the source. This means not buying food from norovirus contaminated sources. norovirus can be found in eggs, and foods such as sandwiches, only. In addition, fresh fruits and vegetables from a number of different sources will also bear this bacteria, including:
-bottles that are washed or sanitized in hot, soapy water.-containers that are used to store raw or ripe fruit or vegetables-holsters-water environments
Thus, it is important to not only be aware of the sources of your food, but also to be sure that you know how to sanitize them to reduce your risk of getting sick. One of the best ways to do this is to use a food filter, which will help to keep bacteria out of the food, as well as other germs. Unfortunately, these foods will often have extra preparation steps, so do all you can to avoid these. Also, you should make sure to keep the source of your food contamination to the outer edges of the pericarp.
