Guide to Freezing Pork

Guide to Freezing Pork

Freezing is a great way to store food products long term, especially any type of meat, as they can go bad pretty quickly otherwise.  You may need to store the extra meat you bought because they were on sale; maybe you had some leftovers, and whatever the reason is, keep these tips in mind when storing pork:

  • Use sealable freezer bags and try to remove air to prevent freezer burn
  • If you’re not planning to cook with it anytime soon, freeze it as soon as you can after purchasing it as fresh meat is highly perishable
  • When storing, label the package with the date that you’re storing so you can keep track
  • To store multiple pieces of pork, separate them with sandwich or wax paper to avoid them sticking onto each other
  • For leftovers, make sure the food is cooled to room temperature before placing them in the freezer

Take at look at the chart below as a timeline of storing:
