- Liquids expand as they freeze, so don't fill containers or bags all the way full. For freezer-safe containers, leave about an inch of space from the top. For freezer bags, fill about ¾ the way full. Let out as much air as you can, and lay flat in the freezer.
- Don't forget to label your bag or container with the date, or if you prefer, the date it should be eaten. You can keep soup in the freezer 4-6 months, but flavors in the freezer start to fade around 2 months.
- When you're ready to eat, let the soup thaw overnight in the fridge, then heat in a saucepan or microwave.
