How does everyone store their leftover MMF? I tried keeping mine the fridge and it seems to dry out. I have each other in a zip baggie and then all of the little baggies in a large zip baggie. I squish out as much air as possible. When I get it out the next time to use it, it seems very dry. I have a very hard time rolling it into a crack free ball.
Are you covering each ball of MMF with a little film of Crisco before placing in the bag and storing in the fridge? I give each ball of my leftover MMF a light coating of Crisco before storing and they are fine even after 2 weeks. Hope this helps!!
After you put the Crisco on, instead of putting it in a bag, wrap it tightly in plastic before putting them all in the bigger bag. That will also help.
Same here. Coat it with shortening before putting it in a storage bag. Welcome Newbies.
Thanks everyone. I'll give the shortening a try. After rubbing the shortening on should I then wrap in some plastic wrap?
Yep, wrap it in plastic wrap and then in a ziplock bag. You want to keep it from getting air in.
