Cool Tips: Help Your Freezer
I like reading housekeeping and food magazines, there's a lot of useful tips, new recipes and great ideas you can pick-up which can help in performing "domestic duties" easier. Here are some great tips I want to share with you which I found today at BBC GoodFood Magazine, to keep your freezer in top condition:
> Set it to 0 degrees F, or lower, then monitor the temperature with a freezer thermometer.
> Stop air and moisture from getting into food in the freezer - use sealed freezer containers or freezer bags, or even foil. Food expands when frozen so don't over-pack.
> Smaller items freeze faster, so freeze recipe items in portions - a cup of stock, etc.
> Use the walls and floor of the freezer to freeze your food faster.
> Add unfrozen food in batches - too much will overload the machine. Stack items closely together.
> Freezers are most efficient when full - if you don't have food, freeze water to fill the space.
Hope you'll find these cool tips useful... Have a great weekend everyone! Enjoy... =)
