Stockpiling Produce Co-op - Utilizing Your Freezer and Food Saver

I picked up my produce co-op last week.  We spent part of the weekend utilizing our food saver to extend the life of our produce!  We were able to bag and freeze 5 bags of red peppers, 3 bags of mushrooms, 3 bags of broccoli, 6 bags of green beans, 1 bag of chopped onion and 2 bags of corn all using the food saver.

If you are new to using the food saver to extend the life of your stockpile I suggest checking out our Stockpiling 101 – Foodsaver and Stockpiling.

    I know what you mean! We had a problem with produce going bad fast when we lived in Alaska. Everything has to be shipped up there in the winter. So to save some money, (a gallon of milk can easily cost $10 depending where you live.) , we froze most everything from soups to grapes when it was warm enough to be bought in season. Grapes are wonderful for the kiddos. We would let ours eat “frozen fruit salad.” Which was grapes, strawberries, and blueberries. She thought they were little popsicles! Or we would put them in her drink to keep it cold, flavor her water, and give her a nice treat when she was finished. Thanks for the post!

  2. I’m fascinated by the mushrooms…do they get gummy? How do you use them. Thanks!

  3. The mushrooms got my attention, too. Have you tried freezing peeled apples? I’ve got to get one, and a freezer!
