Freeze Foods

When you are doing your grocery shopping, don't for get to look for bargains on items that can be frozen. Even if you have a tiny freezer you can still save a lot of money by freezing bargains. Most people automatically think freezing for bread and meat, poultry and fish, but do not even think about grating a block cheese and freezing it.  You can save up to twenty-five percent on buying grated cheese, and if you buy on sale you'll save even more. For each cup of grated cheese add one teaspoon of cornflour and mix it through. This will stop the shards sticking together and clumping when freezing. And did you know that you can freeze eggs? You can as long as you give them a little room to expand. Crack them into ice cube trays or small containers and freeze. Once frozen, pop them out and wrap in cling wrap and then in freezer bags. When ready to use, simply let them thaw for a few minutes at room temperature. If you find apples on sale, make your own apple pies and freeze them or make applesauce or stew them to use on cereal or in puddings later. Many food items can be frozen with no problem. Therefore, the next time you see a great bargain think about freezing. (Dairy products other than hard cheeses do not generally freeze well).
