Food & Cooking

Dinner made easy
Ziploc bags enable me to buy meat in bulk, divide up the meat into several portions, and freeze it. Whenever I cook I just take out one bag and defrost it.

How to defrost foods
Never defrost food at room temperature. Thaw food in the refrigerator, under cold running water, or in the microwave. Marinate foods in the refrigerator.

Marinating the easy way
When I freeze meat, I put the meat and the marinade into a Ziploc Freezer Bag. The defrosting time in the fridge is just the right length of time for the meat to marinate before going on the grill.

Thawing meat faster
Want to store meat so it thaws faster? Put about one pound of ground beef in a large Ziploc® Double Guard® Freezer Bag and flatten it like a pancake. It stores more easily and thaws more quickly.
