Lahore (Pakistan News Online) Eid-ul-Adha, celebrated over a single day, brings a flurry of activity as households across the globe prepare for the sacrificial ritual and subsequent distribution of meat.

Women, in particular, are prominently involved in ensuring the meat remains preserved and ready for consumption.

In nearly every home, a substantial amount of meat is procured, prompting various methods of preservation.

Some women meticulously clean and portion the meat into small bags for storage, while others opt for vacuum sealing for longer-term preservation.

Before placing the meat in the freezer, it’s advised to clean it thoroughly and cut it into smaller pieces. Storing it in a plastic tray or container covered with a light plastic wrap is recommended.

To maintain freshness and prevent odor, a common practice involves placing a bowl of salt and baking soda inside the freezer alongside the meat.

Eid-ul-Adha not only signifies the religious significance of sacrifice but also underscores the importance of sharing and humility through the distribution of meat among family, friends, and the less fortunate.
