Freezing

One of the easiest methods of preserving your garden goods, if you have the freezer space. It’s best for small vegetables and berries or sliced fruits, but should be avoided for leafy vegetables.

Corn: Cut kernels off cobs and spread flat on cookie sheets. Freeze, then store in zippered plastic bags.
Peas: Shell, spread on cookie sheets in freezer. Store in zipped plastic bags.
Berries: Small berries like blueberries and raspberries can be frozen whole. Strawberries can be frozen whole or sliced. (For a special summer treat – freeze whole berries on cookie sheets, then eat straight from the freezer!)
