I have a bad habit of not eating all the veggies in the crisper before they go bad.  When I’m on the road, I try to remember to give them away before I leave so I don’t come to spoilage. This time, I decided to try and freeze them.


I wasn’t sure what exactly to do, so I decided to wing it.

  • Step One: wash the veggies.
  • Step Two: chop the veggies.
  • Step Three: blanch the veggies in boiling salted water.
  • Step Four: dunk them in an ice bath.
  • Step Five: drain and pat the veggies dry.
  • Step Six: put them in a freezer container (glass or plastic bowl, or plastic bag).
  • Step Seven: put them in the freezer.

We’ll see how they turn out when I defrost them next week to make soup.
