* The following
tips may not be applicable
depending

to
Keep opened

minum
foil.

For best storage,
place milk on interior
shelf, not on

closed paper
bag on a refrigerator
shelf.

and trim or
tear off bruised and discolored

chased.

Sforing
Frozen
Food
_-@
NOTE
Check a freezer guide or a reliable cookbook
for fur-
ther information
about preparing
food for freezing or
food storage times.
Freezing
Your freezer
will not quick-freeze
a large quantity
of food.
Do
not put more unfrozen
food into the freezer than will freeze
within
24 hours (no more than 2 to 3 Ibs. of food per cubic
foot of freezer
space). Leave enough space in the freezer for
air to circulate
around packages.
Be careful to leave enough
room at the front
so the door can close tightly.
Storage
times
will vary according
to the quality and type
of
food, the type of packaging or wrap used (how airtight
and
moisture-proof)
and the storage temperature.
Ice crystals
inside a sealed package are normal. This simply
means that
moisture
in the food and air inside the package have con-
densed,
creating
ice crystals.

@NOTE
Allow
hot foods to cool at room temperature
for 30
/
minutes,
then package and freeze. Cooling
hot foods_
before freezing
saves energy.
Packaging
Successful
freezing
depends
on correct packaging.
When
you close and seal the package, it must not allow air or mois-
ture in or out. If it does, you could have food odor and taste
transfer
throughout
the refrigerator
and could also dry out
frozen food.
