Reduce cooking time, facilitate holiday baking and gifting, and keep food fresh up to five times longer – by locking in nourishment and love with these simple food prep and preservation tips and videos. Enjoy fresher, tastier, more flavorful holiday meals everyday throughout the season by:
- Prepping Ahead
The Thanksgiving turkey, the Christmas ham, the sides, the dessert, when it’s all said and done, holiday hosts can easily spend more time preparing the day’s meal than enjoying their guests’ company.
Instead of cooking everything on the big day, the FoodSaver® 2-In-1 Vacuum Sealing System allows holiday entertainers to prepare ingredients and signature dishes ahead of time and remain confident that on the big day, they can still deliver a fresh and superior holiday meal.
Sweet holiday desserts and savory sides can be prepared days – even weeks – ahead of time, vacuum sealed in any FoodSaver® Expandable Bag and easily warmed the day of the big event. By prepping ahead and sealing correctly, hosts can take pride in serving those they care for with a homemade apple pie or creamy mashed potatoes without ever having to chop an apple or skin a potato on the big day.
Abundant veggies, fresh from the garden can be prepped and sealed in the months they are harvested- delivering an extra personal touch to any holiday meal. For tips that will help you incorporate fresh, homegrown ingredients and inject a little love into your holiday prep routine, check out this great video from gardener Sabrina Ball who demonstrates how her family uses the FoodSaver® system to maximize their harvest all year long: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwEhGu1lbcM.
FoodSaver® brand vacuum sealers and packaging give hosts the confidence that their food will stay fresh from the day it’s sealed to the day it’s served…and stay just as tasty, too. Now, hosts can feel pride in putting a fresh, pre-made meal on the table that tastes fantastic and looks great on the plate. After all, every host wants to present a fine-looking, great-tasting meal on his/her best china so guests can feel the love that went into the holiday meal, don’t they?
- Tis the Season to Create, Seal & Share Batch-Baked Sweets
Designating a day of baking in advance is a great way to save precious time and money, jumpstarting the holiday gifting process. Scratch-made cookies and homey holiday pies can be baked in batches and vacuum-sealed using FoodSaver® FreshSaver® Vacuum Zipper Bags to lock in freshness. Ensure your creations taste as if they just came out of the oven by preserving them correctly. And who doesn’t appreciate the love and care put into a homemade gift?
For bakers who aren’t sure how many cookies, pies and other baked goods they’ll need for the holiday season, FoodSaver® Bags and Rolls are a great way to keep dough fresh. Bakers can prepare pie crusts, cookie dough, cakes, and more, and vacuum seal them until they’re ready to be prepared. Then dough is simply thawed, baked and shared.
FoodSaver® products allow gifters to “just put a bow on it” and share their love for baking across the country, with friends and loved ones anywhere. After it, ‘tis the season to create, seal and share!
Seeing is believing when it comes to taking air out and putting love in. Check out these great tips from food blogger Bev Weidner for easy ways to preserve your delicious baked goods this year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBPAh_oN014
