Best way to package?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby BeachBC » Sat Jan 28, 2017 2:23 pm


I have 15 rabbits that I will be processing (for dog food) over the next two weeks and I was wondering what's the best way to package the meat for the freezer? I've been using Ziplock bags, but that gets expensive quick so I'm considering reusable left-over containers.

I know there are several of y'all on here who feed raw...what do you use?

When I fed raw, I processed, left whole and wrapped them in the plastic bags from the store, if... they were going to be fed in the near future. If they were going in the deep freeze for longer than a few weeks, cut into at least quarters in gallon storage bags.

I skin,& then cut the rabbits in half [each dog gets 1/2a rabbit a day] & put in plastic bags. I rinse & recycle the plastic bags for the dogs' food so I don't ehink it's very costly.
