We have these awesome friends who live a mile away from us and they own this amazing property where they grow lots of fruits and vegetables. Well since the season is about to end and they are going on vacation they let us come over and pick all the stuff we wanted. Holy cow did we get a lot!
We gave some away and picked more and I didn’t want all this awesome stuff to go to waste. Well I don’t know how to can (hopefully I will learn soon) so I froze some stuff! I wanted to show you how to properly freeze vegetables so when you want to add it to a recipe you can grab some out of the freezer. No fuss.
Step one: Clean, cut up your veggies, and blanch them to kill any microorganisms. You can do this by placing them in water for a minute or two and then putting them in ice water. Not going to lie if Im just going to use them for stews and stuff I don’t do this but shhhh…. But I don’t want anyone to get sick so you should do this!
Step two: spread out the veggies on a cookie sheet and stick in the freezer for a few hours.
Step three: Place in a freezer safe container or plastic bag for later use.
Super simple and makes life easier
Stay tuned… I talk about preserving fresh herbs without drying them!
