Easy Freezer Foods

Garlic – Chop the cloves and put in the freezer, or freeze the whole bulb. If you chop or mince it before freezing, allow to sit for 10 minutes to release allicin, responsible for its health benefits. It can be stored for several months in a plastic or glass freezer container.
Grapes – Frozen grapes are a great healthy snacks. Wash, dry, and spread them out on a baking sheet in your freezer till frozen, and store in freezer bags.
Fruits – Wash fruit and cut away areas of broken skin. Slice thinly and place wax paper between each layer of slices, and put in the freezer. For zest of citrus, grate the rind, add several squeezes of juice, and freeze in an ice tray.
Cooked Rice – Pack fresh-cooked moist rice in an airtight container or re-sealable bag, and close tightly. When reheated, it will be fresh, moist and delicious.
Onions – Peel, chop, and put in freezer bags to store in freezer until ready to use.
Flour lasts longer in the freezer. Cold flour results in flakier pastry crusts too. Freezing flour slows down spoiling, and protects it from pest infestation.
