Many Atlanta moms are into extreme couponing these days, and with Georgia warehouse stores like Costco, shoppers know that buying in bulk can be the trick to getting great deals. This is perfect for when it’s your turn to bring cupcakes the next play date or if the kids are participating in an upcoming bake sale. The dilemma then becomes how to store the quantities you don't intend to use right away. A Frigidaire Convertible Freezer/Refrigerator could be your secret weapon in the fight for saving money and time. Frigidaire freezers provide flexible storage options with its accessible design, are low maintenance with its frost free automatic defrost, and are built here in the USA. Utilizing the Frigidaire Convertible Freezer/Refrigerator as a second freezer also allows you to keep all your baking necessities at your fingertips without overcrowding your kitchen's refrigerator.
10 Freeze-able Baking Staples
- Eggs: Everyone needs eggs to bake, right? Include just the yokes and egg whites, add a pinch of sugar, and then seal them in airtight freezer bags.
- Butter: Running to the store at the last minute for butter can be a hassle, but if you package sticks of butter in a freezer-safe bag, they can keep in your freezer for up to six months.
- Milk: You can freeze milk for up to three months. The texture might not be ideal for drinking after it is thawed, but it should be fine for your baking needs.
- Nuts: Lots of us like nutty cookies, but it's not uncommon to open that package in your cupboard that you forgot about and find an unpleasant surprise. Freeze walnuts, almonds or pecans to add to cookies later.
- Maple Syrup: Don't be shy about buying the real deal on your next trip up north to Vermont - when frozen, maple syrup has an indefinite shelf life!
- Berries: Blackberries, strawberries, and raspberries all freeze well for making your favorite scones, cookies, or smoothies any time of year.
- Bread: Baking a few loaves of bread is a great idea, but you don't have to feel pressured to eat them right away. Whether store-bought or homemade, bread freezes well.
- Pumpkin puree: Pumpkin puree is one of those seasonal treats that you might not want to overdose on, so don't be afraid to buy big and freeze the extra for that pumpkin-muffin craving down the line.
- Cookie dough: Want that fresh-baked cookie smell in your kitchen without all the work in one day? Make your cookie dough ahead of time, and store it in the freezer. You never know when you'll need some homemade chocolate chip cookies (like when that bake sale at the school comes up at the last minute).
- Bananas: Don't feel rushed to eat this fruit right away - just pop those bananas in the freezer, and you can have banana bread later.
