Buying, Handling & Storage Tips

Originally sealed, prepacked ground pork will keep in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. If you do plan on keeping the raw, fresh pork longer before cooking it, store it well wrapped in the freezer. Cooked leftovers can be kept in the fridge for 4-5 days.

This is one of my husband's new favorites!! I added some corn, green peppers and onion! Yummy! The cinnamon makes it even yummier! I made a big batch and freezed a lot of it in former lunch meat containers -- super quick & easy! ;)
