Line the crisper bins…….

It’s always a good idea to line the crisper bins of your fridge with a few paper towels or sheets of newspaper to absorb excess moisture. Mold spores love moisture, but the towels will keep it away.

How to freeze blueberries……

* Use fresh blueberries that are completely dry when you pop them in the freezer. Don’t worry about rinsing the berries before you freeze them; simply place them, still in their original containers, in resealable plastic bags and store them on your freezer shelf.
* If you prefer to rinse the blueberries first, dry them well with paper towels, then transfer them to freezer containers or resealable plastic bags for freezing. The blueberries will freeze individually so you can remove just the portion you need.
* If you didn’t wash your blueberries before freezing them, rinse them just before use.
For best results, toss your home-frozen blueberries into oatmeal, yogurt, smoothies, shakes or sauces within 10 months.

Making space in the fridge for Thanksgiving………

Make space for Thanksgiving by cleaning out leftovers and expired condiments and using up as much as possible of what’s in the freezer and the refrigerator.
You can store hearty produce, like apples, fresh cranberries, and potatoes, in a cool, dry place, like the trunk of the car or the basement. We made a covered shelf in our shed, it works great as long as the weather stays cold.

Freezing Ground Meat…….

 

Before freezing ground meat, flatten it into a square or into patties, rather than leaving it in a mound. It will thaw faster later. Plus it will save on that valuable freezer space!

Save some money, fill that freezer…….

 

A full freezer is more economical to run as the cold air doesn’t need to circulate so much, so less power is needed. If you have lots of space free, fill plastic bottles half full with water and use them to fill gaps. Alternatively, fill the freezer with everyday items you’re bound to use.

No freeze……..

 
Never freeze baked goods while they are still warm. Moisture condenses on the outside. The interior dries out, but the surface turns gummy when the item is thawed.

Freezing Meat……..

 
Big cuts and roasts can be frozen longer than chops; they don’t dry out as fast.

A Food Storage Hint, did you know…..

 
The butter compartment in the door is not the best for butter, an egg keeper in the door not the best for eggs. Keepthem inside the fridge, with butter well wrapped and the eggs covered.

Organize your freezer……

 
* Organize your freezer space into food groups: meat, fish, leftovers fruit, and vegetables. Makes for a quick find of what you are looking for instead of a search party.
* Put older packages at the front of the freezer so you can use them first.
* Make sure you label all bags and containers; contents and date frozen.

Fresher fruits and vegetables…….

 
Line the bottom of the vegetable compartment with paper toweling. This absorbs the excess moisture and keeps all vegetables and fruits fresher for a longer period of time.
