How To Freeze Fruits And Vegetables Properly!

Learn the correct and safe way to freeze fruits and vegetables

Quick Tips

  • Freeze fruits and veggies when they’re at their peak of freshness.
  • Blanch vegetables first, then submerge in ice water. Dry thoroughly.
  • Freeze fruits and vegetables quickly.
  • Store in heavy-weight, air-tight containers or freezer bags.
  • Fill containers to the top and remove as much air as possible from freezer bags.
  • Vegetables that hold up well to cooking (corn, peas) generally freeze well, too.
  • For better texture, try eating previously frozen fruit before it’s completely thawed.
  • Fruits and veggies freeze best at 0-degrees F or colder.
    Store frozen fruits for about a year; vegetables, about 18 months. (Storing longer is fine, but the quality may decline.)
