Freezing Fruits and Vegetables

Freezing is one of the easiest and most flexible preserving methods - when you’re ready to eat something, you simply thaw it and finish it – and then you can replace the space it took up in your freezer with a new item. It is also one of the most effective preserving methods, because it successfully stops spoilage, decay, and bacterial growth, extending shelf life of most foods to their greatest possible extent.
