Manual Vacuum Bagging

As my canning comes near a close, I don't want to leave the veggies without sharing this neat trick. 

Place cooled blanched veggies in bag.


"Zip" bag almost closed. Insert a straw as shown.

Exhale completely and then suck on the straw until you have a "vacuum" bag being careful to pull out the straw and zip the rest of the way simultaneously. 

Pretty neat, huh?

How To Freeze Zuchinni

Pick firm zuchini.  Figure on about one per serving.  Wash, drain, cut off stem and blossom ends.


Place in boiling water for 3 minutes.


Use slotted spoon to remove and place
in ice water until cool.

Drain and bag.
