After my botched attempt to freeze red and green peppers, see below, I am seeking advice about which vegetables do well in the ice box. Freezing food saves money if it successfully preserves items bought on super sale.
For starters I found a list of freezable vegetables on GardenGuides.com. Their list includes peppers, however, which troubles me because mine turned mushy after freezing. Perhaps they will use the frozen peppers in a soup or omelet, which many helpful readers suggested as a solution.
To get to the bottom of the mystery – which veggies freeze and which ones don’t – I’m starting two lists on this blog.
Let me know which vegetables have worked for you. If there are any particular directions or……intentions for the veggies, include that. I’ll update the list as I get comments.
- Green beans
- potatoes (boiled)
- Chili peppers
- Pancakes (not exactly a vegetable, but still good to know)
Do not freeze:
- Green/red peppers
- Mashed potatoes
