About this deal

A lot of the “slider” seals- they come with the attached plastic piece that slides- tend to break and don’t offer as much air control easily. Sturdy Soup ‘n’ Sauce Freezer Bags that stand upright of their own accord, making them really easy to fill because both hands are left free for pouring. Soups/sauces can be transferred either straight from the saucepan to the bags, as the bags will withstand the heat, or when cooled. As a replacement I've bought a pack of medium re-sealable food bags from Lidl, they came in a box of 15 and were about a pound.

Unfortunately, our Test Kitchen doesn't recommend it, as chunks of potatoes can become mealy after freezing. Quick-cooking barley and sirloin helps get this beef-and-barley soup on the table in a snap—and it doubles easily. Means they keep a flat shape and can be easily stacked / bagged up rather than the splodge shape you get when freezing something straight in a bag. Leftover soup can last up to a month in the freezer instead of just three or four days in the fridge.Keep soup, sauce or gravy left overs in the fridge or bag up homemade soup, sauce or gravy for the fridge or freezer. Ladle soup into an airtight bag like Glad ® FLEX'N SEAL™ Freezer Quart Bags, leaving an inch or so of space. Who wouldn't want to eat their vegetables when they're tucked into a fragrant broth with bits of tasty chicken and spiked with a shot of fresh lime and cilantro? Importantly, fridge storage bags can also make sure food doesn’t become contaminated and remains safe to eat.

While we have taken care in preparing this summary and believe it to be accurate, it is not a substitute for reading the product packaging and label prior to use. I chop up all the veg, add it to a large bowl, mix well, so you have an even distribution of everything, and then use a 1 cup measurement (240ml) add two cups worth to each freezer ziplock bag. Plan on adding some freezer-friendly soups to the menu so you'll always have a delicious meal ready to heat and serve.

We label each bag using an appropriate black marker pen to see which is the easiest to label and also to see if the ink stays on for the duration of the 21 hours in the freezer.

Dairy has a grainy texture when it’s thawed, so the best time to add dairy products like heavy cream or milk is when you are reheating your soup. Once your soup is completely cooled at room temperature, place it in the fridge for a few hours to get it chilled. While a number of the silicone bags do well in our tests, the PEVA bags we test do a lot better on the whole. Ultimately, if you’re not using a plastic bag, it’s up to you to decide how you would like to freeze your soup. Once the food is thawed enough that I can break it into a few pieces or wiggle it out of the bag, I transfer it to a bowl to finish microwaving.We test silicone and PEVA reusable freezer bags, picking the most popular bags from the UK's main retailers.

PEVA (polyethylene vinyl acetate) – the material is commonly used as a safer substitute for PVC (a mass produced plastic that contains harmful chemicals). You can also try this Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup, adding the tortilla strips once you’ve reheated it. Plastic containers are easier to stack and they don’t slide around because of the grooves on the lids.

Functionality – silicone is able to withstand more extreme temperatures, and can be used in the oven or microwave, unlike PEVA. Sturdy Soup 'n' Sauce Freezer Bags that stand upright of their own accord, making them really easy to fill because both hands are left free for pouring. I saw poor reviews for the ziplock but Ive not experience any problems with them so maybe there are less reliable batches or something. I acknowledge that this method requires a certain amount of faith, especially when it comes to concerns about bursting or leaking bags. The advantage is that flat things take up way less space in a freezer than a bunch of odd-shaped containers, plus it's usually easier to find exactly the soup or beans you want for your dinner without digging into the deep and mysterious recesses of your freezer.
