Your freezer is a great healthy-eating tool. When you have more fresh organic produce than you can use at the moment, you can easily freeze many of your favorites so they’re ready when you are. Here are some key tips for making sure your fresh bounty is preserved at its best.
Veggies — Good-quality, firm veggies like fresh beans and peas, carrots, broccoli and cauliflower freeze very well.
Fruits — Berries, stone fruits, apples, pears, pineapples, mangos, figs and rhubarb all freeze very well.
Always label your frozen produce with the item name and the date you froze it. Well-wrapped frozen produce can potentially last as long as 3 to 6 months in your freezer — but for best results, try to use it within a month or so of freezing.
