I do freeze a lot but feeling motivated to do it properly now. The only thing I need now is maybe a printable cheat sheet with all this good info :)

I have blanched them and just washed and vacuum packed in plastic bags. I did notice in your post you said not to thaw just throw right into water to cook? Maybe that is what I am doing wrong? I have also had the same issue with cauliflower and broccoli. Any suggestions would be great! Thanks

I’m so glad I found this. Lately, I’ve turned into a “produce nut”, but sometimes it’s hard to eat all of my delicious Farmer’s Market finds before they spoil.

Your secrets to freezing fruits and veggies is high on my “to-do” list. Now, if I could only find a way to extra room in my freezer. Hmmm…(index finger on my chin).

Thanks You,MJ

My BF tends to plant too many tomato plants which results in us throwing away a large amount of tomatoes since we cannot possibly eat them all. And I love catching 2 for 1 sales at the market for fruits.

One question I have about the water bursting the cell walls problem. Would you recommend dehydrating the fruits/veggies first to remove the water and then freezing? If so, are there some fruits/veggies you definitely would not dehydrate?

Thanks again :)

I just put over ripe fruit in the freezer banana bread. The defrost mushy and are ready for the batter.

I peel, cut them up, and add 1/4 cup sugar and 2 Vitamin C tablets crushed up. I freeze an 1 gallon bag at a time. This is a homemade fruit fresh. A big bottle of Vitamin C is relatively cheap and this works wonderfully. When my son was young I would defrost the peaches and we ate them for dessert, there were rarely leftovers. I also made them into a pudding by adding tapioca and cooking them. Yummy!

I recently started delving into the paleo diet. My mother and I just bought a share in a community farm. We have carrots and chard coming out of our ears for now. This was all new to me and I appreciate this great advice!

You can grow a garden bringing strawberries, peaches and all sorts of vegetables to eat. You would pass by the freezer and see stacks of freezer containers with food inside of them. These were labeled with the food inside, and my favorite was the strawberries. You can enjoy taking the kids to pick out the fruits and vegetables that they want to eat. Click here to read full article [...]

However, WARNING *The only thing I would not recommend is freezing anything in the plastic containers. I used to do this until one time I took my veggies from the freezer and dumped them into a pot to steam not realizing the bottom corner of the plastic container cracked off in the freezer and ended up in the veggies. I ended up choking on it. The plastic then went down into my stomach and reeked havoc after cutting my throat up. I only use freezer bags!!!!
