Finding yourself tossing out food can really chap your hide. Not so much the wasted money but more like you don’t know what to do with it otherwise. For example, pancakes from breakfast, chili from dinner, a bowl of rice, etc. Imagine finding a way to save it to eat at a later date.
River Banks Outdoor Adventures shows us there is a way:
Many people don’t know that you could freeze corn while it’s still on the cob. Likewise, there are many other foods that are just as freezer-friendly. Check them out:
- Pancakes and French Toast. Place extras on a cookie sheet, side by side, until frozen. Put in a plastic bag and reheat in the toaster, microwave or toaster oven when needed.
- Rice. Spread on a wax paper-lined cookie sheet to freeze. Put in a container or plastic bag until needed.
- Flour. Place in a plastic container and freeze. Great for long-term storage.
- Mashed potatoes. Scoop onto a wax-lined cookie sheet and freeze. Place in freezer bags until needed.
- Chili and soups. Pour in a container with room for expansion and freeze. Thaw overnight or run under warm water until it releases. Put into pot and heat.
- Diced onions, bell peppers and chilis. Freeze flat in a freezer bag. Break off sections as needed.
It’s amazing what you can find when seeking to save money. Now that we know which foods we can freeze, it’s time to read up on staying warm during a power outage so we don’t freeze this winter.
