Those of you with freezing experience and know-how, please share your tips, tricks, and advice on this thread for a newbie!
I'm having serious difficulty with freezer storage. I did not grow up with a stand-alone freezer, or a long-term freezer storage example to follow. We probably had enough food in a refrigerator freezer (the top part) to last about 3-4 weeks -- stuff like chicken, beef stew, ground beef, pig tails and pickle meat for red beans, some pork chops, & link sausage. Then it got filled all over again. Past that timeframe, and those meats, I'm getting seriously overwhelmed with issues like:
"How to organize Your Freezer"
"What Freezer models are best for Meateaters and Veggie Gardeners?"
"How to avoid the dreaded Freezer Burn"
"How to identify what's in that freezer package"
"Is it still safe to eat?"
"How to keep track of what's in the freezer?"
