What to Vacuum Pack:
Vacuum Packing Tips:
- Pat down to dry with paper towel before vacuuming.
- If still moist place a paper towel in the bag and seal inside.
- For best results freeze fish before sealing, in particular smaller, more delicate fish.
- Allow hot food to cool before vacuum sealing. This prevents bacteria from producing in the bag and provides a better quality seal.
- Pre-freezing before sealing prevents delicate foods such as raspberries, small fish etc from being crushed by the vacuum.
- Pat them down to be as dry as possible.
- Vacuum packaging allows the special cooking method called sous-vide, meaning “under vacuum” in French. It involves poaching food that is vacuum sealed in a plastic bag, a much healthier option than some.
- For best practice it is recommended to first blanch vegetables before sealing.
- It is not recommended to seal the following: mushrooms, garlic & soft cheese. Furthermore cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and brussel sprouts emit gases when stored that will cause the bag to expand and spoil the food.
