Vacuum Sealed Produce in Mason Jars

steph995 | Jan 21, 2013 11:03 AM

I've been vacuum packing fruit and vegetables in both mason jars and bags and storing them in the freezer. I've noticed that the jars will accumulate ice on the sides of the jars and on the fruit/vegetables. But, the bags don't accumulate any ice.

I've been under the impression that vacuum sealing will eliminate freezer I don't understand why the ice would accumulate in the jars but not the bags.

Can anyone help with this? Will the ice affect the taste of the produce in the jars even though it's vacuum sealed? I'm sure there's an easy scientific explanation to this, but I'm not aware of it :)

Thanks for any help.
