Sealing the zipper bag well before placing it in the freezer is important to keep your food protected from freezer burn or collecting ice and water on the surface. Ziplock bags make it easy as they come built in with a sealing mechanism.

3. Label it correctly

Labelling food frozen in sandwich bags is incredibly important. Once food goes in your freezer it can be hard to remember what is in each bag so write the date and the type of food on the bag. Many sandwich bags will even come with a white area which is perfect for labelling your food.
