Tip: Using the Freezer

When your fruits and veggies are about to go bad freeze them.

Bananas freeze very well, as do berries (and berries are great to eat out of the bag frozen). I freeze bananas and berries individually and then toss all the frozen product into a dated bread bag. The bananas are great in pancakes, bread, muffins, smoothies, and so on.

Bell peppers starting to go bad get diced in the food processor and placed in 1/4 c. portions into ziploc bags. The bags are dated and placed in a bread bag in the freezer. Same with onions. It is so nice to be able to grab a baggie and toss the contents into a recipe without having to do the knife work.

Carrots and celery I cook before freezing.

If you've got a fruit or veggie and you're not sure of freeze-a-bility google and find out.

What other produce do you freeze? Any tips or suggestions?
