Did you know that you can freeze your seasonal fruits and vegetables in reusable bags, rather than disposable plastic? 💚
Ecological, washable and very effective, the PUL fabric that I use for food bags does not fear frost, and does not stain. So pick all you want, and save them for the cold season without worry. 🍓 So you can eat local all winter long! ⚜️
So? What will you be freezing in your Taille & Retailles bags this year?
The fabric used for Taille & Retailles food bags are not affected by the cold. 🥶 They can therefore be used in the freezer without worry. ❄️
The large 11×11 inch format is called freezer simply because it is a similar size (and even a little larger) than the well-known resealable bags. ©️ But all products made by PUL can be used in the freezer, from the smallest to the largest.
🚫 It is strongly discouraged to use them for raw meat and fish, as well as for any food that could potentially cause cross-contamination, despite diligent washing. 🚫
Here are the foods that I tested in my bags and that freeze well: berries, such as strawberries, raspberries and blueberries; vegetables such as cut leeks, carrots and celery; homemade pâtés and pies; breads and pastries; and prepared meals such as shepherd's pie or lasagna. The sealing of the bags is a little less than plastic bags, but still sufficient for the majority of uses.
NB It is always best to freeze food in a freezer without a defrost cycle for maximum shelf life.
