Freezing

This time of year, you might find yourself with a little more veggies on your hands than you can use right away. Don't let them go to waste, put them in the freezer, and in February those carrots will be almost as fresh as the day they were picked! I honestly don't know how they manage to make supermarket frozen vegetables taste so bad. You can freeze almost anything, other than lettuce.
- Chop up carrots, zucchini, tomatoes, etc. Peas, beans, etc. can be frozen whole.
- Boil a pot of water, and throw in the veggies for 30 sec.
- Drain the water, and let air dry for a few minutes.
- Put them into  zip-lock freezer bags. Use a large straw, those big slurpee straws are perfect, to suck out the air as you close the bag.
- Put in the freezer, and enjoy it anytime. We find it's best to use them up within a year.
