I am a student so I cook alone for myself. I would love to stock up in the freezer. I am experimenting with my own recipes for a while now. Some freeze well, some dont. I will share my ideas here soon. My recipes tend to be Indian most of the time since I am from India.
Anyway, my question is, what is a good way to freeze? Zip lock bags, ziplock containers? pyrex containers? wraping in foil.. I have tried all these... zip locks works best but you cannot reheat in a ziplock... After that pyrex worked best for me since I could reheat in the same container.
Do you have any suggestions?
Answer: Hi Kate,
The best way to choose a freezer container is to think about how you'll be reheating your meal.
It's hard to give concrete examples when I'm not sure what kind of meals your freezing, Indian cuisine is quite broad (and I know little about it so I'd love for you to share!). Also, if you haven't read this article about what foods freeze well it might help you.
So, let me assume you know how you want to reheat your meals and recommend containers based on that.
If you're reheating on the stovetop it doesn't matter what container you use since you'll have to transfer your meal into the pan.
