Quick Answers



How do you do a drugstore wrap for freezer storage?

1) Use enough paper so the edges may be folded down at least three times. 

2) Place the meat in the center of the paper. 

3) Separate individual servings with sheets of freezer paper so they will come apart easily before cooking. 

4) Bring two edges of paper together above the meat and fold down in 1 inch folds until the paper is tight against the meat. 

5) Press the wrap closely to the meat to force out air. 

6) Seal or fold over the ends at least twice and tie securely. 

The drugstore wrap is illustrated in GH 1504, "Freezing Meat, Poultry, Fish, Eggs and Dairy Products".
