bologna storage

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by backyard bbq, Nov 15, 2014.

  1. Hey peeps. So I made three bologna's today, my questions are...

    1. How long will it keep in the fridge (made with TQ)?
    2. what are the options for freezing some of it (ziplock freezer bag good enough)?

    I like to cut them in large chunks and vac seal them, then freeze till I need them.

    Storage Times for the Refrigerator and Freezer

    These short but safe time limits for home-refrigerated foods will keep them from spoiling or becoming dangerous to eat. The guidelines for freezer storage are for quality only. Frozen foods remain safe indefinitely.
