This may seem like an odd post but I thought this was warranted. Zip lock bags were not available in the town near us for about 3 years, now they are stocked and we get them often. These surprisingly are labeled as 1 Gallon bags, with expanding bottoms as well. Only this size is available here, smaller sizes would be nice but I won’t complain as I have them now.
If you are grinding your own meat, these are a bonus to you, put the meat in, roll up, seal, and label. I keep these at 500 grams of ground beef or pork per package.
Think of marinating some meat for the grill or cooking later, add everything to the bag and the meat, squish it up a bit to mix it in, roll to get all the air out, seal, and refrigerate, easy.
If you buy vegetables on sale, such as bell peppers, dice the peppers and bag what you think would be needed in a recipe and freeze.
