How to Make Bacon Last Longer and Easier to Cook



Bacon is one of the most beloved foods on the planet. Just seeing the word is enough to make our mouths water. So, it’s no surprise that many people have wondered whether you can freeze bacon. The short answer is yes. Before you go running with your newly purchased package of bacon to the freezer, there’s something you need to do first. If you throw the package in the freezer, you’ll have to deal with a solidified block of meat that you have to transform back into strips, and the results can be unappetizing. To avoid having to do that, pull the strips apart and roll them into individual circles, and then arrange them side-by-side in a freezer bag. This will keep them from sticking together and will allow you to take out only as many strips as you need. While keeping bacon in the refrigerator will keep it good for 4-5 days, freezing it will keep it good for up to four months. That way, you can load up on bacon when you see it on sale.
