What Vegetables Are Vacuum Sealable?
Before vacuum sealing vegetables, you should know about how it works with different vegetables. Here are some tips on which vegetables can be vacuum sealed:
- Firm vegetables like carrots, potatoes, broccoli, celery, corn, green beans, peas and onions can be vacuum sealed without pre-cooking.
- Softer vegetables like tomatoes, zucchini, and squash should be blanched (briefly boiled) before vacuum sealing.
- Leafy greens like spinach and kale should also be blanched before vacuum sealing.
