Vacuum sealing can help you to avoid freezer burn, which means that your food lasts longer. Here’s an easy way to do it.
1. Put your food (like a bunch of chocolate chips) into a Ziploc bag.
2. Place the bag, with the top still unsealed, into a bowl of water. The water will suck out all of the extra air.
3. Zip the top up and place your air-free bag into the freezer until you’re ready to use it. Nestpert:
