Can I use aluminum foil or waxed paper for freezer wrap?
Regular aluminum foil and household waxed paper are intended for short term storage in the refrigerator. Heavy duty aluminum foil is recommended for freezer use. Note: If acid foods like fruits are wrapped in foil, a bitter or metallic taste may result. You may also see some color reactions in food and corrosion of foil.
