If they are already canned there should be no reason to freeze them. Tin cans of veggies can explode in the freezer. They should have a good long shelf life just being canned.

Freezing Leftover Canned Veggies

Hello mamapiglet,

Yes, you can absolutely freeze any kind of leftover canned vegetables. Just place the remainder in a freezable plastic/Tupperware conatiner.

freezing canned veggies

Can I freeze canned jalapeno peppers? Alternatively, how long will canned pickled things last in the fridge?

I take vegtable leftovers and freeze them in a big butter tub and keep adding any leftovers to the same tub. When it comes time for stew, I have mixed veggies.

Freezing Yellow squash

I wondered if I could just slice and freeze yellow squash (washed before of course) or do I have to blanche it first? I thought to just place it on a tray, freeze then place in plastic bags for casseroles or whatever.
