Container Free Freezing Part Two

I did a post about container free storage before that involved freezing items with a high moisture content (casseroles, sauces etc.)

This is about how to freeze individual items.

Here is an example I love making my mom's Stuffed Banana Pepper recipe. It is a lot of work to make these peppers so I try to make a double recipe. Once the peppers are made I lay them out on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and place the baking sheet into the freezer. Once the peppers are frozen, I place them in a freezer Ziploc bag.

I also use this method for cookies. I make the cookie dough, scoop the cookies onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet and place them in the freezer. Once frozen I place them into a freezer Ziploc bag. To reheat just place them frozen onto a cookie sheet and bake them by adding an additional couple minutes.

By freezing food ahead it can help save money and time. Hope these tips help.

  1. You really know how to freeze! :) I guess that's 'cause you're married to an officer. ;) Haha...had to say that, Sis!

  2. Also known as Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) you will see that term on chicken in the grocery store. I especially do this with fruit so that it doesn't glob all together in the containers.

  3. That is a really good idea with the cookie dough. I hate thawing lumps of cookie dough and this is the perfect solution. :)
