In the spring of 2007 I bought a FoodSaver GameSaver Vacuum system as I had been previously using freezer bags when I processed my deer . Last ear was the 1st time I had been shut out during deer season in many many years so I havn't used the Processor until this am .
A friend of mine had bought a brick of special extra sharp cheese that he wants to take to his son in "Kalifornia" and was told at the store that vacuum sealing would make the cheese last on the plane ride without any refridgeration .
I open the box last night to check out the directions . When Lennie came over with the cheese , we started playing with the machine . Initially I couldn't get it to work and wondered if it was defective . I thought , what the heck , I have had this for over a year unused and it doesn't work .
We tinkered around and did something to make it work and got the bag sealed on one end . Put the brick of cheese in the bag and did the vacuum process . What a neat gadget ! It worked slicker than heck . Can't wait to start sealing up some venison this fall !
The Foodsaver is a real neat product and makes any food items last much longer than normal freezing / refridgeration process' !
