When it comes time to freeze the left-overs, if you prefer your soups in a bag and not a plastic container, use these niffty clips to “hang” your bag of soup from the underside of your freezer rack until frozen. This insures the soup will freeze into a nice compact “roll” sort of shape, which is easier to store in the freezer. If you’ve ever filled a gallon bag with soup and then set it on the counter, it immerdiately gets this weird, beer belly sort of shape that creates all sorts of weird corners with the bag. NO THANKS! lol You can also freeze it flat, but I find this is super easy to stuff into small gaps made by other frozen items in the freezer.
