Did You Know You Can Freeze That?

Did you know you Can Freeze That?

Most of know about freezing certain foods, which definitely helps eliminate waste, as well as our budget. Maybe you already freeze things like dough, eggs and milk, but there are many more foods that you can actually freeze.

freeze

corn

Corn
If you buy fresh corn on the cob from a farmer’s market in the summer, you can freeze it, husks and all. Who wouldn’t want some corn on the cob when it is cold outside? If you buy your corn from a grocery store you will want to husk it and blanch the corn before freezing so it will still taste and look good when you do cook it.

butterfrozen

Butter
Butter is great to freeze for later use in baking or for cooking. You can freeze whole sticks of butter. What a great item to stock up on when it is on sale!

frozenavocado

Avocado
While frozen avocado will not be great by itself, you can freeze avocados to use in dips or guacamole later. Wash the avocado and either cut in half, or remove the insides. You can freeze in halves. If you just want to freeze the insides, put in a freezer bag or container, but add some lemon or lime before storing in the freezer. This will last up to eight months!

potatochips

Potato Chips
Ever open a bag of chips and then half of it goes stale? You can stick the bag of leftover chips in the freezer. When you take them out they only take a few minutes to thaw and you can finish them off.

flour

Flour
Although most of us keep our flour in the pantry or on the counter, it will last much longer in the freezer. Many bakers freeze their flour since it make a much flakier pie crust.

Pasta and Rice (cooked)
You can save a bunch of time preparing meals by cooking bigger batches of rice and pasta and then freezing some for later. Freeze these in sizes you can use in future meals. When you remove these from the freezer just sprinkle some water on it and microwave to warm up.

  • I never knew you could freeze flour or butter. We always freeze our Raviolis when we make large batches so we can share them with family and friends.

    I knew most of those with the exception of flour. I will have to try that one.

  • I definitely didn’t realize you could put chips in the freezer. We end up having half full bags go stale way too often, so it’s good to know!!

  • I didn’t know we can freeze some of these like avocado, flour and corn. I think I’ll freeze some of flour to make a good pie crust. Thanks a lot for sharing these informative tips.

  • I always freeze pasta (I usually make a big pasta bake in 2 serving dishes, then freeze one), but I had no idea about corn on the cob! I am loving this resource!

    I would have never thought too freeze my flour. I will have to give it a try. I buy it in large quantities because i bake a lot.

  • Freezing flour? I never thought of that. Potato chips either. Great kitchen hacks.

  • I never thought of freezing the potato chips, this is a brilliant idea.
    My Mother in law cooks Borsch, our national soup that my Hubby loves. She usually cooks so much of it, that we can never finish it, so I started freezing it by portions. It saves so much time for me!

  • I had no idea that you can actually freeze some of that stuff. Who would have thought flour?

  • I never knew you could freeze potato chips! Probably because we never leave any lying around long enough to find out. 😉

  • I actually did know most of these, but the potato chips is a new one to me! So neat that they can be put in the freezer!

  • I would have never thought of freezing potato chips before. What a great idea. I sometimes stock up so this is a great way to make them last.

  • I never knew you could freeze pasta for later. I will have to try that. I always use some of the other ones like flour.

  • Potato chips! We tend to eat about a half of a bag of chips, and then they go bad. This is a great idea 🙂

  • I had no idea about the avocado! That is really interesting! I love to freeze things around here. If I make dinner, I usually make double so I can stick it in the freezer for an easy meal later.

  • I never realized that I could freeze smoothies to save for later when I had leftover, or that I could stock up on bread and freeze it so that I wouldnt have to keep running every other week for more bread. (We dont go through much, and where I get my bread is about 45 minutes away!)

  • I freeze my corn all of the time, especially in the summer. That way I can have corn from my garden well into the winter.

  • Wow I didn’t know about the potato chips. That sounds awesome.

  • I had no idea you could freeze avocado. Granted mine don’t make it long it this house without being eaten but I love the idea. Butter is a great one to know too.
