How to use the freezer to stockpile

 

How to use the freezer to stockpile:

Think outside of the box when it comes to freezing.  Eggs can be frozen for up to one year. Don’t freeze eggs in the shell, remove them from the shells and mix them well before freezing. After mixing well pour them into an ice cube tray and cover with saran wrap. They can be placed in a freezer safe container after frozen. They should be thawed in the refrigerator the day before you plan to use them for best results.

Milk can be frozen however it may separate when thawed. Frozen milk is excellent for cooking and can be used for drinking but may need to be shaken. Freeze milk by the gallon by removing some of the milk (1½ cups) per gallon so when the jug expands it doesn’t overflow. You do not have to remove milk from a paper half gallon. It can be frozen for 1 month. For best results thaw in the refrigerator and shake well before using.

You can also freeze cheese, bread, fresh fruits (remove oranges from the rind), meat, OJ, butter, veggies and more!  Shredded and block cheese freeze very well in the original package.    Bread also freezes well in the original bread bag.  When freezing OJ follow the same procedure as milk.  Margarine and butter freezes fine in the original packages.  I really love to freeze my own veggies and fruit during the summer from my garden  or when they are low prices and use them all winter long.  I suggest using the foodsaver if possible.
