How to keep fruits and vegetables in the freezer

  • It is very useful to slice the fruit or vegetable before freezing it, because this way it will take up less space in your freezer.
  • Use glass or metal containers, as well as airtight bags.
  • We suggest you blanch the vegetables beforehand to make them last longer.
  • Place them at the bottom of the freezer to avoid temperature changes every time you open it.

  • Keep citrus fruits only for three months since after that period they are damaged. Any other fruit or vegetable can be stored frozen for up to 12 months.
  • As what we want to achieve is not to waste food, so as not to forget that you saved them, put a reminder on your cell phone that tells you that they are there.
