Freezing Foods

Freezing is not necessarily the preferred way for preserving all vegetable and fruit products. What to freeze is determined on the basis of family needs and desires, on freezer space and cost of freezer storage, and on other storage facilities available.

It may be more economical, for instance, to store some fruits and vegetables in a vegetable cellar than to freeze them. Freezing may be worth the extra cost because of the convenience of having products prepared so they can be readied quickly for serving.
