Ex- peri beauty work of all kinds performed in our sajpn. FOWLERS Beauty Salon Phone 305 ALGONA GREENHOUSES Today's homemaker is a smart food buyer. One of her favorite tricks is taking advantage of "specials" in meats at the supermarket, buying extra cuts and storing them in her home freezer, to stretch her food ,, dollars. . ..••••.; But she also know^ proper freezing must follow her trip to the store— if her thrift-wise shopping is really to pay off. Thus she keeps in mind three important points about freezing meats at liome:'',,. ,1. 'Choose high quality meats. Since-freezing does not.jmprove the flavor tof any food, the frozen product will be no-better than.the food in its original state. •••••..• " . ,- . ,, ,£,-, .... _ 2. Package meats properly. Choose a wrapping material which keeps air out. When air is allowed to reach food during freezer-storage, the result is loss of moisture, accompanied by a change in flavor. The food soon becomes unpalatable. The condition known as "freezer burn" occurs when air enters the package. •-..-. One df the best freezer wrapping materials ori the market is the new plastic wrap made of saran. Because this transparent film 'clings to the shape of any food being wrapped, it is possible to mold the film closely even to irregular cuts of meat, such as roasts, squeezing out a maximum amount of air from the package. ' „ Follow this simple method: First, pad any bony edges with an extra piece of saran; then overwrap with a atngle thickness of the film using the "drug store wrap" method; pull saran tightly around meat to get the closest possible seal before applying freezer tape; tape and label. Masking tape which may be written on is good and makes labeling easy.
