? Food Saver - esgunn - 08-03-2008

Do any of you use your food saver for freezing breads/buns? I have a lot of buns leftover from our big summer party and I don't want them to go to waste or to get freezer burn.

Do I flash freeze and then seal as normal, do I do the instant seal? I turned it to sealing time 2 and tried that way but it just squashed them.

I just freeze mine in a bag--the pressure in the food saver bag is too great. I don't think it would help that much anyway.

Agreed. The vacuum of the food saver would probably cause the bag to crush the bread, especially if it has a softer crust.

Erin, I made the mistake of thinking I could put fresh buns into the foodsaver bags and even went as far as vacuum packing. The buns were instantly turned into hard little pancakes! Don't know what I was thinking. Hubbie said maybe I could freeze the buns first, then use the food saver, but I haven't tried that. I just put them into ziplocs instead. Let us know what you decide or if you "experiment."

Generally, bread freezes pretty well, any way.

I've frozen rolls and used the Food Saver on them after - it works if you stop the machine just as it starts 'vacuuming'

I know it is tedious, but I individually wrap baked goods in plastic wrap and then place them into a ziploc. Air is the culprit.
