Tips on Which Vegetables Freeze Well

To be honest, I would say that you could freeze most vegetables, and most with very excellent results. I have selected a few to talk about and given you a small more information about them. Broccoli is a excellent vegetable to freeze but the ones with tender stalks and no flowers on the heads are better. Make sure you wash the broccoli thoroughly and blanch for 3 minutes before cooling in ice cold water for a further 3 minutes. You can pack in plastic containers or freezer packs in the freezer, which ever you prefer. Then freeze.

When choosing asparagus, if you are picking it yourself, be sure to choose round, smooth, tender and medium sized spears with tips that are closed. Make sure you break off any tough ends as far down as you can up to where the stalks can snap with ease. Was the asparagus. If needed, use a vegetable scrubbing brush to remove and sandy or rough particles. Tie the spears into bundles with aluminum foil or string, or you could cut each stalk into 1 inch sized pieces and store in a plastic container or freezer bags. Then freeze.

With peppers first you need to wash them and remover the seeds in the same manner as you normally would. Then you need to slice the peppers into strips. You can tie the strips together in small bundles with aluminum foil or string, or cut the strips into small pieces and store in a plastic container or freezer bags. Then freeze. When freezing cabbage you must first strip off the outer leaves and wash the rest of the cabbage. Cut the cabbage into small thin strip or shed it and blanch for one and a half minutes. Then cool in cold water for the same amount of time. Place the cabbage in a plastic container or freezer bags. Then freeze.

Celery needs to be washed and cut into 1 inch pieces and then blanched for 2 minutes. Then place in cold water for the same amount of time. You can tie the strips together in small bundles with aluminum foil or string, or cut the strips into small pieces and store in a plastic container or freezer bags. Then freeze. Wash tomatoes before removing the stems and cutting into halves or quarters. You could leave them whole if you wish. Dry the tomatoes and pack them into plastic containers or freezer bags. Then freeze.
