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 knows 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 home: 1. Choose high quality meats. Since freezing does not improve the flavor of 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. \\ hen 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 of the bc?t freezer wrapping materials on the market is the new plastic wrap made of saran. Because this transparent film clings to the sljape of any food being wrapped, it is possible to mold the film closely even to irregular cute 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 single'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.
