Did you know you can freeze more than just leftovers? Many of us may be stockpiling each time we go to the grocery store, so here’s what you can freeze without fear of it expiring.
Freeze extra yolks or egg whites and pour them into an ice cube tray or muffin tin so they don’t go to waste. Good for up to one year.
To prevent flour from going buggy in the pantry, store it in the freezer. Flour stays powdery while frozen, so there's no need to thaw before using.
Keep in its original wrapping then place in a freezer bag/sealed container. Good for 6-12 months in the freezer.
Cheese can be good for up to 3 months in the freezer. Be sure to keep in original unopened packaging or store in freezer bag/sealed container.
Peel then cut in half, puree or mash and store in a bag/sealed container. These are good for around 5-6 months in the freezer.
When bananas get too ripe for your liking, peel them and freeze them. They can be added frozen to smoothies, and work great for bread recipes.
Since brown rice only has a six-month shelf life when stored in the pantry, prolong its shelf-life by storing it in the freezer. There’s no need to thaw your rice before you use it – just measure what you need, and then add it to boiling water to cook.
To freeze milk, all you have to do is remove around a cup of milk from each gallon. This allows room for expansion, so the jugs won’t burst when they freeze. Then, once you're ready to use, allow the milk to thaw, give the jug a good shake and serve.
Even though granola can be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry spot for six months, you can also freeze it just like you would other sweet treats. Just wrap tightly in plastic wrap or in a resealable freezer bag.
