Good morning, I just bought a Foodsaver model V1085 on e-bay.. It'll be delivered in a week or so.. Before I use it I have a couple of questions.. 1... would this be a good way to store my sausage seasonings, by vacuum packing them? would storing them in the freezer after they're vacuumed be OK?? 2... With fresh meat & gravies etc. there's bound to be some liquids, blood, water etc. would that get into the vacuum pump.. do you have any suggestions for me to freeze fresh meats etc.. Thanks for any help you can give me.. I don't want to ruin the machone..
