Spring is fast approaching, the air will soon be warmer and the great outdoors will be calling your name – it’s time to go camping! We’ve spent our fair share of nights ‘under the stars’, by the beach or with family and friends at a caravan park as we explore new frontiers or re-discover old favourites. We’re sure you agree that a good camping trip comes down to preparation. Food is certainly high that preparation list and having your meals pre-made and vacuum-sealed ready to go will free you up to maximise your time away.
So, with camping season just around the corner, we thought we would show you how quick and easy it is to prepare your meals to take with you.
Vacuum Sealing for Camping & Road Trips
To prepare your vacuum-sealed meals for your camping trip, cook your food at home in bulk, portion the food into required meal sizes and vacuum-seal the bag using one of our great and reliable vacuum-sealing machines. This leaves your food nice and sealed with no air for the nasties to breed in.
You can then freeze the vacuumed sealed meals ahead of your camping trip. At mealtimes just reheat your meal and enjoy. It’s camping made so easy !!!
A quick meal is a lovely pasta; make the sauce at home and then vacuum seal it. When making the meal at camp, cook some pasta up, place the plastic vacuum-sealed bag in with the pasta and it warms up while your pasta is cooking.
Drain the pasta, cut the bag open and tip it into your saucepan, and you have a fabulous meal prepared and ready to eat in only a few minutes.
To just warm something up, boil a pot of water, put the bag in until its hot, cut open and then eat….easy! For liquid foods, freeze it first.
You don’t want liquid getting into your machine, so the easy way is to pour the liquid goodness into a bag, freeze it and then vacuum seal it. No more spillages – this works well for foods such as bolognese, sauces and soups.
