Tip of the Week: Why You Should Label Your Freezer Items

Are you always guessing what's inside your freezer?

Identifying items in the freezer and figuring out how long they’ve been sitting there can be a challenge, especially when they’re not properly labeled. When storing meat, poultry, cold cuts, fish, and seafood for later use, always wrap them tightly in plastic wrap, place in a zip-top freezer bag, and put a label inside the bag. (Instead of sticking a label on the package, we like to put the label inside it so the label doesn’t get wet). Indicate the name of the item, type of cut, weight, and date of purchase. With this simple solution, you’ll be able to eliminate all the guesswork!
