Freezing Fruits and Vegetables Step 2

Step 2

To blanch: Bring 1 gallon of water per pound of prepped vegetables (about 2 cups) to a boil in a large pot. Add the vegetables, cover, return to a boil and cook. (Suggested blanching time for 16 fruits and vegetables to follow.)

Transfer the vegetables to a large bowl of ice water. Drain well; pat dry.
