This is something I happened across one day, I was attempting to vacuum seal some leftovers, semi-liquid state.
So I freeze in a shallow pan first then into the bag and vacuum away.

As I was placing the sealed bag into the freezer, I see two or three blue (reuseable) ice packs.

The idea hits me, why not make my own...................

I freeze several shallow pans of water, place in the bag, vacuum and done. I left one on the counter to conduct a little test, it thaws and I refreeze, worked like a charm. I make them in exactly the perfect sizes I need to fit lunch pails, cooler, etc.

They travel well and if broken, no yukie blue stuff.

Also, it helps to use up the odd sized bags you have left over that are to small to do anything with.

I have even experimented a little and placed some chucks of foam soaked in water and frozen in a few to use as emergency ice packs at my kids sporting events. They melt and form to the injured area better than just the block of ice.

Good tip. Lots of folks pour a little water out of plastic bottles (so they can expand when they freeze) to pack in the cooler. After they melt a bit, you can drink them if they've served their cooler purposes. I guess the down side is that they wouldn't pack as well as the frozen baggies.
It is not the killing ...; it is the contest of skill and cunning. The true hunter counts his achievement in proportion to the effort involved and the fairness of the sport.
