Blanching

7. Blanche Your Veggies

You may have heard your grandmother speak about blanching vegetables to get them to freeze better. This helps preserve nutrients through long periods of freezing.

All you have to do is cut up your fruits or veggies and boil them on high heat for 3 minutes, stirring regularly. Next, strain them and prepare a bowl of ice-cold filtered water. Toss your veggies in the colander to encourage water to drain. Then, soak the veggies in the bowl for 3 minutes. Drain again and pat dry with a clean cloth. Store in a sealed bag in your freezer for up to 3 months.
