It’s official… our summer is over and we are full steam ahead into fall and harvest time. If you are like me, we are right in the middle of trying to use up all our vegetables out of the garden so they don’t go to waste.
Well, I just have to tell you about my new gadget that I just purchased because I am so excited and love it! It is the Hamilton Beach Vacuum Sealer and it is so extremely easy to use and I can’t wait to not only use it on my vegetables, but my big plan is to go through my freezer and eliminate by large containers of food and put them into the vacuum seal bags. They are easier to store for space and it lasts so much longer.
One reason I love the vacuum sealer is because exposure to air causes food to spoil quicker, causes freezer burn and staleness. The Hamilton Beach Vacuum Sealer System removes the air and seals in the flavor and freshness and it also extends the life of foods by removing most of the air. By removing the air, it keeps the mold out because mold can’t grow in a low oxygen environment and by freezing your product it stops the growth of yeast.
The best benefits to vacuum sealed packaging:
- Foods don’t get freezer burn.
- Foods last longer, so you throw less away.
- You save time and money.
- Enjoy your favorite foods all year long. (Corn-on-the-Cob in the middle of January)
- You can vacuum seal supplies to keep them clean and dry.
For hunters, this is also a great gadget because if they do their own butchering this is an awesome machine to keep their products preserved throughout the year.
Ever since I purchased this machine it is like a new toy in my kitchen and it I can’t stop using it. Enjoy and Happy Preserving your Harvest!!
