What is freezer burn? How can I avoid it?

Freezer burn is dehydration caused by food being exposed to the air in the freezer. Often packaging insufficiently prevents dehydration. Re-wrapping food in airtight containers or wrappings usually avoids this problem. It's safe to cook and eat freezer-burned food, but the resulting meal is often tough and tasteless.
