View Full Version : Freezing veggies w/o blanching?

Are there any veggies you can freeze w/o blanching or cooking?
Can you throw any straight into the freezer like you can most fruits?
Thanx a bunch :)

Sure, absolutely, for example the corn for the enchilada recipe. Just slice it off the cob, put in a container, and freeze. I'm still pretty new and there's alot of recipes I haven't tried yet, but I've done this and so far, so good!! :)

I second what rawhomeschoolmom said.
There are some vegetables I pick from my garden that go straight to the freezer after I pack them in containers. :)

You shouldn't have any problem as long as you use them in a reasonable period of time. Otherwise, they could not taste quite as good and you may lose some of the food value.

I take my veggies, whip them into soups and freeze. This way I get the best quality.
Today I did cucumber, avo and asparagus soup.
Tomato and Basil soup

Great! I went crazy at the produce store w/ all the sales and was afraid I wouldn't be able to use all the food I bought.
