How to store liquids in the freezer

First of all, don’t buy these fancy stand-along freezer bags, you would just be wasting your money. Storage in a rigid plastic container is not the best option either because i) the container will most likely be taller than the amount of liquid you want to store, taking uncessary space in the freezer, and ii) you would need to have a lot of containers in your cupboard to fulfil your freezer storage needs.

So, what I do is place a small easy-seal plastic bag inside a plastic container and fill it to the required level. Tip: fold the top of the bag towards the outside by about an inch to protect the seal from spills. Leave in the freezer overnight. Then, pull the bag out of the container. Seal the bag (if not done already), make note of content and date and return to the freezer. Tip: warm the container with your hands or dip it quickly into hot water if the bag is stuck inside the container.
