You have invested money – now invest a few minutes caring for the meat. It is necessary to wrap meat properly before storing as this helps the meat to retain its juice and flavour. Unwrap fresh meat and place in meat compartment. If you don’t have a special compartment, place meat on a plate and cover loosely with waxed paper, box or plastic film. When storing meat in a refrigerator follow the refrigerator storage time chart. If you are going to store the meat in a freezer follow the freezer storage time chart.
