Vacuum Sealing Vegetables
The New Vacupack Visaal http://vacupack.com/commercial-vacuum-sealers-packers
Vacuum sealing vegetables can save time and money down the road. If you buy fresh vegetables when they are in season, they are usually much cheaper than they will be if you wait and buy them later from the grocery store. During the summer and fall months when we harvest vegetables or buy them from local growers, we package our vegetables for use at a later time, using our VacUpack vacuum sealer. It is easy to have control over the contents and the size of the packages. We package “soup mix” vegetables, mixed vegetables, corn, carrots, peas, green beans, potatoes and wax beans. We package them in sizes just right for our family, not forgetting to plan to have larger packages for holiday cooking. Peeling potatoes on Christmas Day is a pain. It’s much easier to pull out a pre-packaged bag of potatoes and just throw it into a pot of boiling water, allowing us much more time to spend with our loved ones instead of sweating in the kitchen!
The Vacupack SousVide Bags are built for this process. Traditional Vacuum Sealing bags will leak the boiling water into the bag destroying the food.
