If the opportunity arises, spring and summer are the perfect time to stock up on fresh local fruits and freeze them for those out of season months.
You can also freeze meats and breads year-round.
The faster you freeze the food, the better it’s quality will be when thawed.
Always write the date on anything you freeze and wrap your food closely before freezing.
Defrost food in a cool place such as a fridge with a loose cover over it.
Never refreeze food after it’s thawed unless you’ve cooked it and cook food as soon as possible after thawing.
