Flash Freezing

I just learned about this great technique that can really help to save money on produce. Flash freezing is easy and can be done on veggies, fruits and even meat. All you do is line a baking sheet with wax paper and then make a thin layer of whatever you want to freeze. Place the entire baking sheet in the freezer for 30 minutes to an hour (depending what it is).

Once it is frozen place in freezer bags for storage. The good thing about this technique is that it will freeze each piece individually where you can get out a cup at a time or whatever you need for a recipe. So many times when you do freeze something it becomes one big lump and it must all thaw in order to be used so flash freezing will solve the problem! This is really great for fruit that can be used in smoothies.

I was in Kroger a couple of weeks ago and they had some multi color pepper packs for $.99. I bought several packs and then flash freezed them to have on hand for different recipes. It was so easy and worked great. Flash freezing will really come in handy this summer with veggies from our garden or when I see really good deals on strawberries.

I found out about this from Faithful Provisions. She has so many wonderful (and easy) money saving tips! Here is a video from her site on How to Flash Freeze.
