Good to freeze
- Washed sliced mushrooms. I find it very convenient when making omelets and pizzas to have sliced mushrooms on hand always.
- Berries! Great for fruit salad, yogurt and hot cereal, as an extra bonus it cools down your cereal just right.
- Shredded cheese. Buy it in bulk or on sale and freeze what you don't use.
- Vegetable scraps. Keep the peels and tops of scrap vegetables in a freezer bag then later on make stock out of them, you can freeze the stock as well.
- Alfredo sauce.
- Cakes. Make a cake in May eat it in September, it will taste just as moist, just make sure to wrap it in clear wrap then foil.
- Left over Thanksgiving turkey. Wrap your left over meat in foil then store it in a freezer bag to keep off freezer burn.
- Grapes. They are delicious grape popsicles, but don't expect them to unfreeze well.
- Minced garlic. Buy bulk garlic, put it in your food processor and store it in a freezer bag, break off a chunk whenever you need it.
Do Not Freeze
- Potato soup. I do and have done it a couple times but it will come out grainy.
- Yogurt. Unless you are looking to have a tasty frozen treat don't try to unthaw your frozen yogurt. It gets a grainy texture and will loose its creamy thick texture.
- Eggs. hehe forgot about that boiled egg I wanted to cool off quickly.
- Beer. BIG mess.
- Lettuce, but everyone probably already knew that.
|The amount seen in the food processor makes a substantial amount more than pictured in the Mason jar.|
