This is a nice surprise to serve your guests. It will taste good, and the presentation would be so novel.
To get a perfect cheesecake you need a special appliance. What is it?
Here is your answer:
Using a FoodSaver vacuum sealing system!
The benefits of using a vacuum sealer to seal in the cheesecake is that one, the flavors are mixed well, and preserved as is. Also, it can preserve the cheesecake for longer time. It is air-tight, and odor-proof so your cheesecake will not smell like any other foods in your refrigerator in the same way that none of your other foods will smell like cheesecake.
You can use any model of FoodSaver vacuum sealing system. But not all models come with the jar sealer accessory (hose and lid) to use on mason jars. For some, you may have to buy it separately (see detailed instructions at http://vacuumsealeradviser.com/food-saver-reviews). It is, however, worth the investment. Aside from cheesecakes, you can pretty much seal in and preserve other foods like grains, cereals, even coffee. You can also use on fruit preserves.
Mason jars and lids come in two sizes – regular or wide-mouth. Jar sealers also come in both sizes. Decide what size you prefer and buy everything in that size. Regular-size sealers cannot be used on wide-mouth jars. Continue reading →
