10 advice on freezing food

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

In today's topic we will bring out an old statement: better safe than sorry! We are in the kitchen today and are trying to prevent fridge cleaning after some of the groceries expired. Instead of leaving the groceries to pass the expiry date, try freezing food and avoid throwing food away.

Food is supposed to be placed on your family table as a part of super delicious dishes and food is not supposed to end up in trash. But sometimes we just don’t get to cook and use all vegetables or eat meat you prepared today.

If you get vegetables and fruits from your own parents or from your grandmother's garden, you will know that they always tend to fill your bags with healthy veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, spinach and others.


There are always a lot of vegetables for your family but sometimes you don't want to eat the same food two or three times a week. And then it happens that a cabbage waits its turn in the fridge until the moment you decide to throw it in the trash because it cannot be used anymore.

Furthermore, even though you regularly freeze meat that you buy on a weekly or monthly bases, you have not yet got used to idea that you can freeze some other foods as well and thus make your next cooking easier.


                            What food can you freeze?

Freezing food



Ova ljetna namirnica raste uistinu brzo i u samo nekoliko dana morate pobrati nekoliko primjeraka. Tikvice možete spremati na razne načine, ali opet, ne možete ih sve pojesti baš sad. Preporučujemo da ih narežete na kockice ili listove, a možete ih zalediti i cijele. U zimskim mjesecima s radošću ćete spremiti domaću tikvicu umjesto da brzo hitate u dućane.


Još jedna zahvalna namirnica za zamrzavanje. Svi radimo ukusne umake i zaledimo ih za zimu, ali rijetko se tko sjeti oguliti nekoliko rajčica i zamrznuti ih za kuhanje ukusne juhe ili za dodatak jelima u koje inače stavljate kupljenu sjeckanu rajčicu ili pelate. Iz vrećice samo odvojite jednu ili dvije rajčice i ubacite ih u posudu.


Another summer vegetable that can wait for a winter in the refrigerator and then dry out and rot. You can always freeze the peppers, maybe make delicious stuffed peppers out of it or use them for a risotto, a roasting, a soup or as a delicious side dish made on olive oil.
