How to Freeze Produce
Steps to freezing produce:
1. Make a plan, gather materials (freezer bags, tupperware containers, colander and a knife) and set aside some time.
2. Pick produce that has ripened and isn’t bruised or tarnished. Follow this by blanching and shocking produce in a quick hot water bath, followed by a cold rinse in ice water. Allow produce to dry completely.
3. Set your freezer to 0 degrees Celsius or colder (if it isn’t already in this temperature range). Place produce on a single layer baking tray and allow to freeze. Once frozen, pack produce into an airtight tupperware container and/or a freezer bag and leave it in the freezer for up to 18 months.
-add Ascorbic Acid to fruits like apples, nectarines, apricots and peaches so that they don’t turn brown when being frozen.
-thaw frozen fruits at room temperature and allow them to thaw fully before consuming.
