Save Foods by Freezing Them

0 comments
 
Us Americans tend to waste a large amount of food annually. It is estimated that nearly 30 million tons of food is wasted every year and that nearly 40% of all food purchased is wasted. A trick to avoid wasting food is to freeze it for a later date and allow foods to spoil much less quickly.

  • Many breads and rolls can be kept frozen for nearly up to a year and still be good for use.
  • Raw eggs can be frozen for up to six months. 
  • Butter can be frozen for up to 8 months. 
  • Most vegetables can be frozen for a year.
  • Whole chickens and turkeys can be frozen for up to a year.
  • Strawberries can be frozen up to 6 months. 
  • Cream Cheese can be frozen up to two months. 
  • Soups and stews can be frozen up to 3 months. 
  • Hotdogs can remain frozen for two months. 
  • Milk can be frozen for a month's time. Be sure when freezing liquids to allow for expansion in the container by draining some of the liquid. 
Almost all foods can be frozen. Be sure to check freshness upon thawing the food.
