Zip lock bags ?
« on: June 28, 2006, 03:30:52 PM »
Hello

I am using 6 in 1 sauce in 28oz cans-- enough for @ 3 or 4 pizzas.
Has anyone used Zip Lock bags for the unused sauce and freezed it.
If so for how long also how long is reasonable to keep it in the refrig.
Thanks

I don't know about sauce, but we've kept all sorts of stuff over 6 months in the Freezer ziolock bags.  They are quite a bit thicker than the regular bags.

For some reason I thought I posted on this already, but I guess I only addressed pastic containers.

When I was feezing in zip-type freezer bags I had similar issues as I mentioned in the link above. When using a chest-type freezer it was worse, little tears would develop from being moved or from getting crimped and cause freezer burn.

I also believe the sauce break-down increases in a frost-free freezer (what I own now) because the temperature fluctuates to prevent ice build-up.

Is there any interest in non-pizza recipes to use-up Escalon tomatoes? Since I dont freeze sauces anymore I've developed some recipes so I'll start up one in the off-topic  section if there's enough interest.

Oh, I did notice that the Escalon sauces seem to be doing well in the freezer when made into pizza wontons for snacks and appetizers.
