    Default Seal Foods Without Vacuum Sealer

    This is brilliant for those that don't have a vacuum sealer....

    I would, to make it even better, use a small straw in a smaller hole and remove even that last bit of air...

    Great idea !!

    Here's a quick, easy, inexpensive way to seal foods airtight in a plastic-bag. All you need is a zipper-lock bag, and a tub or pot of water.

    The deeper you go the more it will push out, not exactly vacuum sealer but a heck of a lot better than pushing out the air on the counter.

    Quite environmentally friendly too-no vacuum sealer machine to be made,no air pollution while transporting the MC from the manufacturer to the sales man,no hydro to run the MC............way to go.

    I was using a straw/bic pen 20 years ago to suck the air out of ziplock backs for the freezer. Some of them stay OK, but a lot of them will eventually leak. Maybe now with the double seals they'd be better. Once I bought my first vacuum sealer I've never looked back.

    Have to admit I kind of chuckled, who doesn't do "this"?

    Even though I have a sealer, there are things I know I don't need it for. Chicken breast being one, when we buy "bulk". Aka more than we will eat right away, but will get eaten very shortly. Most often that's also stuff that goes in the refrigerator, like bricks of cheese.

    drop it in the zip lock, zip until there's a 1 inch gap, raise to lips, suck out air. Or if your wife is squirmy about kissing you, you could use a straw to, when you put the cheese back in the zip lock/refrigerator
