Can I use plastic bags like those at vegetable counters or that contain bread for freezing?
Most of those bags are not moisture and vapor resistant enough for long periods in the freezer. If the wrapping material is not moisture-vapor-resistant, the food will dry out during freezer storage regardless of how tightly you seal the package. To maintain quality use bags, containers, and wrapping materials specifically designed for freezing foods.
