Meat turning brown/black in freezer?
« on: March 05, 2018, 10:12:58 am »
I currently have some meat in regular plastic grocery bags in the freezer that are turning brown and black over time, is this ok or should I buy some ziploc bags to put them in?

Non-RVAFers do seem to overreact to the contents of my freezer unless I have the raw meat vacuum-packed. I don't like to contain them, but it is more difficult to keep the fridge non-smelly if I don't.

I don't trust plastic bags with meat. I think the theory is that you have to make sure your meat gets air. As to the color, I wouldn't worry about it - just let your nose and palate guide you.

Whatever is redder and tastes fresher than I guess, thanks.

I find that if I let certain meats sit in the sun, they become astonishingly tasty - like jerky but more moist
