Use Those Zipper Bags in the Kitchen
The global pandemic has undoubtedly taught us the importance of time management and the use of multi-utility products to organize our lives. High quality zipper bags are a recent innovation for a hassle-free and organized experience. These bags have caused a significant revolution in kitchens and are also suitable for other items that need to be kept organized and in one location.
Here are six unique ideas:
Store one week’s meal: Organize it by labelling the bags with the designated day/type of meal stored in them. This can make your week’s meals less stressful and save you time on last-minute preparations. In fact, if any of your meals contain curry, the leak proof double seal technology prevents it from spilling.
Keep leafy vegetables fresh for longer time: Leafy vegetables, such as cilantro leaves, mint leaves, methi leaves, spinach, or spring onions, generally spoil even when refrigerated. To keep them fresh for a longer period, first dry them out (if there is any water) by leaving them open in the room on a piece of paper. Once the water has dried up, place it in a zipper bag and the refrigerator. The bag traps moisture and thus keeps your leafy greens fresh and in good condition for a long time.
Smoothie meal prep: Health-conscious individuals who enjoy smoothies and include them in either of their meals on a daily basis can now relax about taking time away from their chores to prepare them. These zipper bags keep your chopped fruits fresh for an extended period. The fruit combinations, as well as the day and mealtime, can be listed on the label, and you’re done.
Streamline the freezer: You can save freezer space by freezing food flat in zipper bags for easy stacking instead of using a hard plastic container. Because these double-line zipper bags are leak-proof, you can use them for soups as well; just don’t put anything heavy on top before it sets.
DIY pastry bag: When you’re ready to bake and realize you’re out of pastry bags, turn to the zipper bag for assistance. To fill cupcake molds, cut half the bag off, place the filling inside, roll it from above, cut a slightly thicker part off the corner, and easily fill the molds. To pipe a long-winded birthday message, simply snip off the tip of the corner.
While the Zipper Bag appears to be a simple household item, it can be used for a variety of purposes. Savories, dry fruits, curries, purees, and even marinated meat can be stored and labelled, and it also makes snacking on the go easier and less clumsy.
