    Come on. At zero degrees Fahrenheit? Through plastic or other barriers?

    Paul;

    We divided up a celery root (celeriac) to use some and freeze the rest. Our freezer is below zero. Within a few weeks, the entire freezer smelled of celery. The taste spread, and even today nearly 10 years later, there is still a hint of the odor. The celery odor compound is an organic chemical not that much different in molecular weight and vapor pressure than some of the volatiles in color developers.

    Enjoy your food.

    And this was in, for instance, heavy duty, sealed freezer bags?

    On a related note, did you know that celery contains pheromones that attract women? PE, have you noticed girls hovering around your freezer after this incident?

    Most people are more interested in the photographic materials IN the freezer. In unopened original packages I might add.

    And the celeriac was in aluminum foil and DOUBLE bagged, because I wanted it to keep the odor and freshness in.

    So, how many here who freeze or refrigerate photographic solutions double bag?

    FYI - Today I picked up 5 of these in a 2L size, and one in 5L: http://www.containerstore.com/shop/k...uctId=10011037

    There are certainly cheaper jars out there, but all of the others I was finding were measured in ounces.

    Those would probably work reasonably well, with the following concerns:

    That 5L jar in particular would be quite heavy, and all of them would be a bit slippery.

    I would also recommend that you dedicate each jar to a particular chemical, because the seals may absorb chemicals.

    It might be a good idea to have some extra seals on hand.

    I use Jobo containers. They are the thickest plastic containers with the best protection that I have seen. They come in frosted and black.
