What foods can you freeze?


Milk

Store in its original container, but pour out enough milk to allow for expansion – approximately a cup per gallon of milk. Thaw in the refrigerator, and shake well before using.

Butter

Store in its original container. Thaw in the refrigerator to use.

Bananas

Freeze in peel. Then, simply thaw and peel to use in smoothies and breads. Note: the peel will turn black, but that won't effect the quality of the banana at all.

Celery

Wash and chop to desired size. Then, flash freeze on a tray, and transfer to a freezer bag or another air-tight container. To use: add the frozen celery directly to soups or other heated dishes.

Tomatoes

Wash thoroughly. Then, freeze whole and unpeeled on a tray. Transfer to freezer bags once fully frozen.
Wash and remove the ends of the tomatoes. Then, blanch; chop and freeze in bags.
Just choose the method that works best for you, and freeze away.

Tips:

1. Frozen tomatoes should be used in cooked recipes only. Freezing changes the texture and makes them too soft for eating raw.
2. Freeze some tomatoes whole and chop others to accommodate a variety of recipes.

Nuts

Freeze (either in shell or shelled) in a freezer bag or another air-tight container.
