View Full Version : how to store leftover soups/purees
11-30-2007, 12:24 AM
Hi all - quick question
I am wondering how to preserve the extra stuff I have for all these soups/smoothie stuff I have made so far...
-cream of broccoli
Do you know how long they keep in the fridge? Should I freeze them?
What should I do with extra soaked cashews, seeds, or nuts? Just cover with water and refrigerate? or puree and store?
I have so many questions now that I am actually making stuff!
- tomorrow, I plan to make:
zucchini hummus (LOLF)
butternut squash soup (LOLF)
sunflower herb cheese on goneraw.com
more marinated greens!!! YUMMY
spicy fries (LOLF)
Dill Cheese Dip (maybe)
So wish a sister luck -- plan on having lots of options, since we are expecting 6 inches of snow on Sat.
RAWK IN IT ALL DAY LONG!!

Do You have a dehydrator.
The nuts and seeds should be redried after soaking.
Anything you have and do not want to use can be turned in to a cracker by adding ground flax.

Freezing always work.....You can Freeze it in indivual portions.....

Usually most stuff keeps in the fridge anywhere from 3-5 days. I haven't froze anything yet myself, but a lot of people do a "once a week uncooking" & freeze large batches for later.
Off topic here, but where are you in WI.?
I am in Oshkosh & we are at 16 degrees right now with it feeling like -1 !!!!!! :eek:
We are also in the winter storm watch zone expecting 4-7 inches of that yucky white stuff! :mad:
I've lived here all my life & I still am NEVER ready for the winter.........:(

thanks guys! my dehydrator should be here on Mon ( WOO-HOO!!)
In the meantime, I think I will add the soaked stuff to my smoothies and salads over the weekend, and freeze the purees until my "magic box" comes !
Montk: I live in Madison/Sun Prairie area. We are expecting 6 inches tomorrow, so I want to get stuff cleared out and functional this weekend.
I wish a Wisc. rally of rawbies could gather.. maybe we can plan a visit there-- how far are you from Madison?
Thanks everyone! I appreciate the advice!

I'm about 1 1/2hrs. north of Madison.
Get togethers would be great......just not in winter time for driving :(
Did you get the excalibur dehydrator? If so, you will LOVE it!

I got my magic box today (dehydrator) and I do love it!
But the first things I made -- sweet potato chips and spicy fries, were soft and chewy and kinda wrinkled looking...
so I am now drying some flax crackers in the box... and wondering how I am gonna get up at 3am to flip this thing?
I want it to come out nicely, but I need to time this a little better. Hubby is excited -- and enjoys the smell of the basement office now -- no more dampness!! Its a fun place to be!!
Yeah - that would be soo cool to meet up -- after the winter thaw of course!!
Looking forward to learning from all you magic box veterans!!
