Saving seasonal fruits by freezing preserves nutrients

See also

Freezing seasonal fruits so they will be available throughout the year is the choice of many who enjoy healthy menus.

Fruits that will be frozen for future use should be frozen as quickly as possible to preserve nutrients. Some choose to purchase fruit that is already prepared and frozen from their local markets because they feel these may have been done at the peak of the season.

Checking sites to learn what the nutritional facts are about frozen fruits might be helpful.

Those with children who will enjoy treats such as frozen popsicles may find it easy to make these with fresh fruit and save for the times when the fresh fruit is not available.

The key to preserving the nutrients in fresh fruits when freezing has always been doing so quickly. With the technology available to flash-freeze foods, consumers can feel fairly sure that the frozen items purchased are a good choice.

The following interesting information is from The Pioneer Woman:

When you flash freeze something, you set it, unwrapped, into the freezer for a short time—twenty minutes or so—until the surface mess hardens enough that it won’t smear all over the freezer bag.
