Freezing fruits
 
I plan to hopefully, if they are plentiful this year to freeze fruits. Has anyone done this? I know that strawberries, cantalope, blackberries and blueberries can be frozen.

But how do I do it? Do I just wash them and stick them in a bag? Or do I need to do something else to them? And what kinds of fruits can be frozen?

Thank you so much for the freezing of fruits tips.

One way I freeze fruits is to wash them and place them on a cookie sheet to freeze first... and then put them in a ziplock freezerbag and you can take out a handfull or whatever you need. I usually freeze grapes, strawberries and melons.:)

The berries shouldn't be washed before freezing or they will burst from the water crystals that will form.....just put them in a zip lock bag in workable quantities. wash when you want to use them.
otherwise you will have mush!

I guess I should have added that I mostly just use the frozen fruits for fruit smoothies:-: :.

One thing about dry freezing fruit, it usually works best if you put them on a cookie sheet/jelly roll pan and freeze them on the pan individually, then put them in freezer bags.
