That is a LOT of applesauce!
For the first batch, I grabbed some plastic storage containers. I quickly figured out that I didn't have enough for all the applesauce we'd produce, and what I did have, I didn't want tied up in frozen applesauce. After a little thought, I could pop the applesauce cubes out of those containers, and put 2 each in large ZipLoc bags instead. Either way, they take up a lot of freezer space in that shape.
|Ha. Just got this out of the freezer to take the photo.|
"Breaking or cutting it" will not be an option, since
it's over 3 inches thick in places. Will just have to thaw
it and reheat any I want to refreeze.
This is when I remembered why I used to have ZipLoc bags in the quart size. For the last year or so, we'd gone to buying only the gallon and sandwich sizes, as the quart-size was usually too small or too big for most daily needs.
|Remember to turn the tops back, so when you goo-up the|
top during loading, that it's really inside the bag.
|Also, it's advised to write the contents and the date|
BEFORE filling. Oops.
However, they will be perfect for storing applesauce in usable amounts, and they're easy to label. I can freeze them flat for easy stacking and efficient use of space... "in apple pie order!" ;-)
