Thanks for dropping by.
Since this is a no grocery shopping week, I am depending more on my freezer.
Now, let us think of the freezer. I don't have a chest freezer. We just use the freezer that comes with the fridge. No, it is not a fancy fridge. Just a regular one, with a freezer compartment on the top.
Now, what do I freeze?
At present, we have carrots, beetroots, and spinach. Then few tomatoes and some fruits.
Carrots were plenty in the fall. Same was the case of beetroots. We peeled and sliced the carrots and freeze them in freezer bags. Beetroots were boiled first, then removed skins. They also got sliced before getting in the freezer.
I have ginger in the freezer. Whenever we buy ginger, I wash, peel and slice into cubes and then freeze them. Want ginger tea? Just drop a small piece in the boiled water and seep. You got it right? Do you know you can freeze the curry leaves? It will turn slightly blackish, but the flavour will be same. Green chillies can be frozen too. I like to freeze garlics too. Just put a few frozen garlic cloves in your stews or soups. It is just fine. (Wash and peel them before freezing)
I even freeze the store bought bread. Costco has the 3 packs of bread. I place them in the freezer. Before using, you just have to put in the fridge and let it thaw. It is good for making sandwich or toast.
I do even freeze the vegetable scraps. I keep a plastic container in the freezer to keep my veggie scraps. Once the container is full, I make veggie stock in the slow cooker.
What you have in your freezer? Do you use the freezer to save money?
