How to Freeze Homemade Meat Sauce
You can keep leftover homemade meat sauce in the fridge for about 3 to 4 days. To make it last longer and because we love to freeze food, we freeze this recipe by placing the sauce into a freezer friendly ziplock bag or mason jar.
Place the meat sauce in the freezer and make sure it is stored properly. Please make sure you date the jar or freezer bag and make sure your freezer temps stay at 0 degrees Fahrenheit to make the sauce lasts longer.
If you can't keep the temp at zero read the following line.
We recommend using the meat sauce by six months and the reason is in my opinion the quality and taste might not be the best. Again this is just my opinion.
To cook this 3 meat ragu recipe just thawed the meat sauce in the first and reheat until is hot.
