Try This Simple Technique For Freezing Fresh Vegetables

Freezing Fresh Vegetables From The Farmers Market

Looking for a compact reference with instructions for boiling, steaming, baking, roasting, and microwaving a variety of vegetables? You’re in luck. Awhile back, Becky shared a nifty chart with exactly that info. I’ve taped a copy to the inside of my kitchen cabinet — t’s really helpful to have all these cooking details in one clear table. (Thanks Becky!) Soon after Becky’s post, I did a bit o’ research so I could freeze my overflowing green beans before they went south. (Apparently my farmers market bags are bottomless.) I found a simple method for freezing fresh vegetables and reheating and decided to supplement Becky’s chart with one of my own. Read on for the details.

Hi all! I'm Mary Gerush - a recovering corporate worker bee turned good-farm-real-food advocate and writer who wants to help people understand what they're eating. I tend a tiny urban farm in Dallas, TX, and hope to scale up one day soon. Omnivore through-and-through, there's not much I love to eat more than a butter-basted grass fed steak fresh from a searing hot cast iron skillet. Follow me on , , and !
