How to label plastic containers for freezer cooking

Labelling plastic containers that you have filled with all your great time-saving meals is one of the most important steps. You don't want to be faced with a freezer full of meals that not only do you not know what is in the containers but you don't knoiw if it has been in the freezer for two months or two years.

But you need to be able to label these containers with a label that won't come off too easily when they are being moved around in the freezer, but so they come off easily enough so they don't gum up your dishwasher when you wash them to get ready for the next meal.

There are a couple ways you can label your plastic containers. The best is to use tape and then write the information with a marker on the tape. Painter's tape (usually green in color) is the best, as it is a bit easier to remove than masking tape, but both will work. Get them in a wide width, so you have plenty of room to write the item, date and cooking instructions.

You should NOT use dry erase pens to label your plastic containers. Once you shuffle the containers a couple of times, the ink will rub off when you touch them or when they rub against anything else in the freezer.
