A Simple Way to Pour Soup into Bags

My friend, CV and I cook in bulk once a month. It's cheaper, easier, and way more fun than cooking every night on my own. This is the soup we made. Delish. But, difficult to pour into bags for the freezer.

Enter the can:

This is one of those big Costco size cans of tomato sauce that we used a while back. CV had a great idea (she got the idea from another person she cooks with...see, good things come to those who bulk cook) of putting a gallon size freezer bag in the can (which is empty and clean of course) and pouring the soup in. Genius. I can now have both of my hands free to minimize spills.

So, find a friend to cook in bulk with and be sure to save a large can for pouring liquids.


  1. for those of us who don't have the can, maybe a 3 quart saucepan would work? just a thought...
