These were already cooked and I used a Foodsaver. Both had a watery taste but were "ok" otherwise. Oh well. Maybe 2.5 months in the freezer was too long? Maybe they defrosted a little then refroze (i did have an episode where the freezer lost power for about a day but i didnt think anything thawed)....
