Two ideas for storing soup

Asides, Being Human

When you make a big vat of soup – and with root veg being so cheap at this time of year you’d be crazy not to – you can freeze the remainder so you’re not eating leek and potato or carrot and parsnip every day. It makes sense to freeze in one- or two-person portions, but there aren’t that many small containers in your house, soooo.. what to do?

  1. Save old tins and reuse these.
  2. Use sandwich bags. (You may have to stand them together in a bowl so they don’t fall over before they freeze.)

  1. I like the way you think, Ed. All I have to do now is get my wife onboard.

    What do you suggest as a sealing method if I try to talk her into the “old tins” approach?

    Are you a Brit, btw?
