As I have mentioned before, we freeze or can a lot of our produce from our garden. It's just the smart thing to do, putting away food for the winter and using vegetables that we know the source and trust. Plus, it's much cheaper to grow your own beans and freeze them than buying fresh all year round. I guess I could buy frozen ones but they just don't taste as good.
And so I freeze things. More specifically, I freeze beans. Not all vegetables freeze well but I really don't mind the taste of thawed beans during the winter months. Maybe it's because I grew up on them and am used to the softer texture.
Once they are blanched, you need to cool them in cold water immediately.
That ends my post on freezing veggies for today, but I'm sure I'll be back at a later point with different vegetables. Do you freeze veggies or fruit in the summer to use during the winter? Or do you buy fresh or frozen from the grocery store? Do you think I'm crazy?
