Do you know about flash freezing? I use this method all the time when preparing foods for the freezer. Flash freezing is perfect for many types of foods, but is especially convenient for small foods you wish to have access to in individual portion sizes (such as peas, berries, corn, etc.). This is also a great method for freezing sticky foods that would make a mess putting straight into a plastic bag (such as meatballs, cinnamon rolls, or JW Potatoes). It keeps them from adhering together in one large lump :)
When you flash freeze something, you set it, unwrapped, into the freezer until the surface hardens enough that they won’t stick to each other or all over the freezer bag. Here is a pan of blueberries that are ready to flash freeze:
By freezing them in a single layer, they will remain separate once frozen. This allows you to scoop out just a few berries or several cups at a time and leave the rest in the bag or container.
After they are frozen, take them out of the freezer, place them into a freezer bag, and return it to the freezer until needed at a later time. . .
Try it sometime!
