A quick tutorial for preparing meat for freezer storage with freezer paper.
Freezer paper is a heavy-duty paper that is coated on one side with a plastic film, making it ideal for wrapping meats that will be stored in the freezer. Here are the steps to properly wrap meat with freezer paper:
Start by laying out a sheet of freezer paper, plastic side up, on a clean, flat surface.
Place the meat on the paper, leaving a few inches of space around the edges.
Fold the top and bottom edges of the paper over the meat, then fold the sides in to create a snug package.
Use clear packaging tape to seal the edges of the paper, making sure that it is airtight to prevent freezer burn.
Label the package with the type of meat and the date it was packaged, and store it in the freezer.
When you are ready to use the meat, simply remove it from the freezer and unwrap it. Make sure to thaw the meat properly before cooking it.
Note: Freezer paper can be used for a variety of meats such as poultry, beef, pork, and fish, but make sure to always thaw the meat properly before cooking it.
