Holiday Food Storage
11.29.12 Holiday Food Storage
At this time of the year, I take particular notice of the various food storage options we have here at MightyNest. Between storing holiday baking and my inclination to gift reusable glass containers, I start to wonder: Which containers should I use to package and gift? Which sizes do I need to store all of that holiday baking I'm planning on doing?
And then it's good to know....which containers can I freeze? And which ones are safe for the oven?
To make organizing a bit simpler, below is a breakdown of several food storage needs. One thing stays consistent throughout this assortment; ALL of these containers are free of BPA, PVC and lead to safely store your food.
GIFTING: I'm easy to please when it comes to storing food in glass. But, my choice jar is Weck. Especially for a gift. Even though Weck jars are primarily used for canning, they're also perfect for dry food storage as well. The cylindrical jars comes in 3 sizes, the tulip jars in 2 sizes and for the classic "mold" jar, we have an assortment of 6 sizes.
Your own blended hot cocoa or chai tea mix packaged in a reusable container gives your gift even more meaning.
BAKING + STORING: The Bake n Store is also referred to as "refrigerator glass" and has the vintage look that is highly appealing. Easy to bake a favorite dish and then bring along to a holiday party. Made with thick walls of tempered glass, this 5 cup bake n store is both durable and versatile in use. Use for baking up to 425 degrees.
FREEZER SAFE: If you're wondering how to plan ahead and make winter soups inlarger batches and then freeze them safely, we highly recommend Duralex's Lys Square Storage Bowls with BPA-free lids. They're leakproof, easy to stack and a terrific way to freeze in batches.
FESTIVE FOOD STORAGE: The new red lids are perfect timing for these True Seal food storage containers. Fill these with holiday cookies, tie on a festive bow and you're prepared with a thoughtful gift. You can be sure that your present will be put to good use well after the cookies are gone, far more than the limited use of a plastic container. Available with green or white lids too.
REUSABLE PIE BOX SET: The ultimate in reusable gifting. Surprise a pie-lover with this exclusive piebox serving set which includes a tempered glass pie pan, a handcrafted maple wood pie server and a reusable wooden piebox.
Happy Holiday planning!
