My youngest son Joe is a proud member of the U.S. Army serving in Iraq. A few weeks back I got a request to send a batch of his Aunt Patty’s brownies. Getting baked goods shipped overseas comes with a few challenges, we tested the use of FoodSaver Vacuum Packaging Systems

Joe got his brownies. It took 3 weeks for them to arrive and he reported that they were nice and fresh. I used the FoodSaver® set on 3 for the brownies and 4 on more solid cookies. Since this worked so well, I am busy thinking up new applications.
