I recently purchased a vacmaster vp 215 and love it so far but have some questions on sealing softer/wet foods.
1) I have made smoothies and thought I would freeze and while it worked great I found as it sealed the smoothies would foam up/expanding and start exiting bag before sealed.
2) Made some sausage today and went to seal those and the also swelled up and popped out of the natural casing. tried stopping it as soon as it got to the green section on the seal and it didn't explode as bad but also didn't fully seal.
any ideas how to seal either of these while fresh? I'm in the process of freezing the sausage before I package it but assume there is a better way I'm not aware of.
Thanks in advance for any help
