From what I've read.... Vacuum seal whatever you want, put those sealed bags into a larger mylar bag, then O2 absorber in mylar.Do you put in the oxygen absorbers too?
I might try mylar in my food saver. I doubt it will work but if you wrinkle the edge a little it might.From what I've read.... Vacuum seal whatever you want, put those sealed bags into a larger mylar bag, then O2 absorber in mylar.
I guess the idea is that the O2 absorber gets the oxygen in the bag and whatever may seep in... the mylar is a cheap way to try to keep more oxygen out.
Yep, this works well and is what I've done for quite some time. Wifey looked at me funny when I asked her for her old flat iron. Only word of caution: beware the source of your oxygen absorbers. Some I've bought have been old, or complete shit and failed to work...and be sure to use the right amount/size absorbers for the size of mylar bag being used.So after doing some more research, trying to vacuum seal mylar bags is almost impossible. The most popular way to seal is using a flat iron (just take your wife's). So open the bag, insert the food into the bag, throw in the oxygen absorbers, compress the bag and flat iron to seal it.
