May 23, 2008, Newsletter Issue #370: Store Poultry Properly

Tip of the Week

Proper freezing methods are important in poultry storage. You can either freeze chicken in its original package or repackage it for portion control. For alternative packaging methods, store meat in a heavy-duty foil or freezer paper and an airtight, Zip-lock bag. Wrapping poultry in a proper manner will prevent freezer burn, which occurs when air reaches the surface of the chicken. Freezer burned poultry will have spots, colored either gray or brown. If the portion of the affected poultry is small, simply cut it away. However, if too much of the poultry is freezer burned, you will likely have to discard the entire product, as it will turn out too dry or poor tasting.
