Tip: How to Fill a Ziplock Bag


Has this ever happened to you? You want to freeze a soup or sauce in individual Ziplock (R) bags but you you end up spilling more on the counter than you put in the bag? Here's my completely logical, but rarely thought of trick...Put the bag in a container to hold it first!


As with most of my tips, I thought this was a fairly well known tip, but any time I pull out this trick at a friend's dinner party, I always get one or two "why didn't I think of that" comments!


There's really no method to this tip. Simply open a plastic bag into a cup, fold the opening over the mouth of the cup, then fill with any soup, sauce, icing or in the case of my pictures, salad dressing. It's like having a third pair of hands!


My only word of caution is to make sure that the liquid you're using is NOT boiling. This will cause the bag to melt, which would lead to an even bigger mess! So if you are storing a soup, make sure it sits at room temperature for at least 10 minutes. 

Enjoy your cleaner counter and freer hands!
