If you don't have a vacuum sealer, whats the best way to freeze. The reason I ask is I made some sausage links and froze them in a freezer bag. They were covered whit ice and ice crystals. Don't know if that really hurt them or not. Should I individually rap them with plastic rap and then put in bag? Or freeze them in a freezer first (openly)and then put them in a freezer bag? Done this with breakfast patties I made and worked out well. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
