Summer is here and the weather is getting hot. It’s time for those favourite summertime fruit, barbecues with friends and spending time outdoors.
The last thing that anyone wants to worry about is food going back. Throwing away food is like putting money down the drain. Luckily GLAD has a collection of food protection products that can help in keeping food fresh longer.
In the summer, we like to be able to barbecue at the drop of a hat. We marinate big batches of chicken or ground beef and like to have them ready in the freezer. It’s important that the meat stays as fresh as the day it was packed and not get any freezer burn. GLAD freezer bags are perfect for that! When company is coming over, we just pull out a bag and no one knows that it was made in advance.
Spending the day in the kitchen when it’s hot outside is not one of my favourite things. When I do take the time to cook, I like to make big batches and store leftovers in the freezer. It’s easy to pull out what we need without slaving over a hot stove. The food containers can go from freezer to microwave to dishwasher which makes it super convenient. I like to store the food right away, to avoid it from going bad.
One of my favourite GLAD products is Press’n Seal Wrap. I like how it seals to different surfaces and even to itself. It’s perfect for storing food in containers where I have misplaced the lids. It’s also great for protecting food not in containers, like a half-eaten apple. The wrap sticks to itself and the food is tightly sealed. I’ve used this for making individual salmon portions – so convenient!
On top of using these GLAD products, you can make food last longer by properly storing them in the fridge.
