What containers do y'all freeze your food in? Has anyone used glass jars or ceramic? Do they crack? I'm trying to move away from using plastic bags and containers. What else is there to use?
Thanks for any advice...

i use mostly these, and i really like them. i also have a vacuum sealer, so i still use plastic sometimes, but not nearly as much as i used to, and only for certain things

I've used glass canning jars with good success. I frequently will put leftover soup into a mason jar but leave a good 2 inches of space. I let it cool, then put in it the freezer WITHOUT the lid, but put the lid in the freezer too. Then when it is frozen solid I put the lid on. Never had any problems with this way of doing it and I always have a million canning jars around.
