A quick tip for freezing

With all of our recent posts on preserving and saving summer fruit, we here at Passable neglected to mention one of the most obvious ways to save fruit: freezing.

One of the major problems with freezing fruit is what happens once it is freezes: it often ends up in a big jumbled mess of berries. One of the easiest things you can do is to freeze the fruit on a cookie sheet, so that the fruit doesn’t buise and release any of its juice. That prevents the berries from sticking together and leaving you with big clumps of mushy berries. This works best for raspberries, blackberries and strawberries.

And remember to label your fruit with the date and the weight. This makes things much easier when you’re trying to remember how much fruit is in each bag and when you froze them.
