    Use a basket, strainer or cheesecloth (bundle a pound or less of vegetables in the cheesecloth) to submerge vegetables in the boiling water. If the water doesn't return to a boil in about 1 minute, use a smaller amount the next batch. Freezing vegetables is a fast and easy form of food preservation, and most crops, such as asparagus, broccoli, green beans, peppers, summer squash, dark leafy greens and all types of juicy berries.

    Water makes up over 90 percent of the weight of most fruits and vegetables. This water and other chemical substances are held within the fairly rigid cell walls which give support structure and texture to the fruit or vegetable. Freezing fruits and vegetables actually consists of freezing the water contained in the plant cells. You can actually freeze a whole bunch of different fruits and vegetables to use later! For Freezer Success, Follow These 8 Steps: Freeze ripe, high-quality fruits and vegetables. Freezing won't magically fix any rot, lack of ripeness, or mold -- it will just preserve those pesky problems.

    freezing. For best quality • Freeze fruits and vegetables when they are at peak ripeness. • Freeze fruits and vegetables in small, made-for-freezer packaging (smaller sizes freeze faster). • Remove as much air as possible from packaging. • Freeze fruits and vegetables as quickly as possible (0°F or colder).File Size: KB. Choose young, tender vegetables or well-ripened fruits for freezing. Tomatoes may be cooked, pureed, or juiced before freezing. Wash, peel, and trim away bruised areas. Cut into serving sizes, if desired, before freezing. Blanch all vegetables (except peppers .

Generally speaking, all fruits and vegetables can be frozen in a single layer on a parchment-paper-lined cookie sheet, and then transferred to a glass container for storage.

This prevents them from sticking together when freezing. Freezing fruits and vegetables actually consists of freezing the water contained in the plant cell. When the water freezes, it expands, and the ice crystals cause the cell walls to rupture.

The texture of the thawed produce will be much softer than it was when raw. The water in fruits and vegetables expands during freezing and breaks the cell walls.

That’s why thawed foods sometimes have a soft, mushy texture. To maintain as much of the crisp texture as possible, fruits and vegetables should be frozen at the lowest possible setting on the freezer.

8 Best Advice for Freezing Freeze foods quickly. Set freezer temperature at o F at least 24 hours ahead of freezing .Fresh fruits and vegetables need low temperatures (32 to 55°F) and high relative humidities (80 to 95 percent) to lower respiration and to slow metabolic and transpiration rates.

By slowing these processes, water loss is reduced and food value, quality and energy reserves are maintained.Freezing in the Fruits and Vegetables Industries Liquid nitrogen systems offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional methods of food freezing and chilling, processing larger quantities faster, while occupying significantly less floor space.
