Vacuum Seal THIS


So close to 20, but there wound up being 19 entries in the vacuum sealed organic blondie contest. The winner is EMILY!  I baked these tonight and am shipping out tomorrow. 
It's been 6 days since I vacuumed the previous batch and when I opened them tonight they were stale.  Oh well.  I'm not sure if it has to do with the amount of pressure - maybe they would be better off in a non-commercial vacuum sealer? - or if they never had a chance in the first place and six days is just too long.  I know that just covered in saran wrap they last at least 3 days, so maybe the whole vacuum seal isn't worth it at all.  I will try the bed/bath/beyond grade sealer next, but after that I think without preservatives or priority shipping these don't have a chance. 
Thanks to everyone who entered! I promise to have more giveaways very soon.  I will be interested to hear Emily's review of how they were upon arrival.  Her batch is wrapped up and pictured above.
