I also cut peppers into strips and freeze, that way I can pull out however many I need and chope them up for soups, sauces and casseroles.

If stress could burn fat, I'd be skinny and if chocolate could add brain cells, I'd be a genius!

I shred carrots raw and freeze them (no blanching) in ziploc freezer bags. Then I throw the shredded carrots into soups, breads, meatloaf, jello, etc all winter. It's a nice way to up the nutrient value of a recipe.

I like to munch on dried fruit, but i son't have a dehydrator and it would be expensive and ineffective to build one.

I plan on freezinf some carrots. i already did beans.

Frozen grapes are wonderful. Be sure to wash them, then dry them before freezing. They aren't as hard as an ice cube and are very refreshing on a hot day.

I also turned my sister on to freezing fresh red raspberries ... and she in turn, turned me on to turning those frozen raspberries in to a treat ... she adds a chocolate chip into each raspberry before freezing!

I tried freezing grapes once, they came out kinda mushy. I'd heard you can munch on them completely frozen (think...ice cube style) but never tried it.

You'd have to prep them before freezing.

APPLES:You could puree the apples, or for slices, you'd have steep in a solution of 1 lemon added to 1 3/4 pts water for 15 minutes. Dry on absorbent paper. Open freeze (on a cookie sht) then pack in poly bags.

PEARS:Poach for 1 1/2 minutes in heavy syrup to which has been added ascorbic acid or lemon juice to prevent discoloration. Cool then pack in rigid containers leaving at least 1 inch head-space and cover with crumpled greaseproof paper.

CARROTS:Blanch small, whole carrots for 5 minutes. Diced or sliced for 3 minutes. Pack in polybags or rigid containers. Allow 1/2 head space.

Hope this helps!

If I slice apples and pears and carrots etc...can I then freeze them and take them out during the week and throw them in my lunch bag? Will they be brown?

I will...I shall...I must!!!
