Freezing Produce

Being a family of vegetarians we go through A LOT of produce in this household. I have been known to purchase so much at once that I cannot possibly use all of it before it starts to turn. I spent my night last night blanching and freezing a good chunk of my produce for future use. Freezing your produce ahead of time is a great way to save money and cut down on household waste. homefamily.net has a very helpful guide and preparation charts to freezing fruits and vegetables. There is even a recipe for freezer strawberry jam. Happy freezing!!
