The Perfect Solution for Freezing Broth
I make my own broth. I make chicken broth, Tasty Turkey Broth, beef broth, just about any kind of broth I can manage.
Several months ago, I made a big batch of beef broth. I put big soup bones in the crock pot, threw in a bunch of root veggies and some fresh herbs, and let it cook for 36 hours. Then I strained it and had 4 quarts of beautiful, flavorful, so healthy and good for you beef broth.
Because I shop every few months and had just recently been shopping, I don’t have a lot of freezer storage space. For some reason, I didn’t have any freezer bags. I could have used mason jars, but they would take up so much room in my freezer.
Then I had an epiphany.
Breast milk freezer bags.
- They are marked with measurements.
- They are double-bagged.
- They are designed to store liquid in the freezer.
I proceeded to fill 16 bags with one cup each of this amazing beef broth. Now, when I want to use it, I just pop a bag out of the freezer and let it thaw.
A perfect solution. A bit unconventional, but I’m okay with that.
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.

Crazy the things you come up with…but genius :)
Hye if it works I say go for it.. I would love to know how to make that kind of stuff…
wow! that’s a great idea…but i think my leftover bags are in storage!
Genius! What a great idea!
Girl, you’re goooooooooood!! :)
That’s a great idea. I have at least a full box of those left over!
Great idea! I think I still have a bunch left. I ended up returning 3 boxes that I over bought for my trip to Germany last year.
That is brilliant! Now that I have weaned baby, I wasn’t sure what to do with my breast milk bags. Perfect!!!
That’s a really really good idea. I don’t have a baby, but I may have to buy some breast milk bags just to store stock in. The measurements would be so handy.
