Literature on freezing and blanching can be found in bookshops.

Note

Keep food which is to be frozen away from food which is already frozen.

The following foods are suitable for freezing:

Cakes and pastries, fish and seafood, meat, game, poultry, vegetables, fruit, herbs, eggs without shells, dairy products such as cheese, butter and quark, ready meals and leftovers such as soups, stews, cooked meat and fish, potato dishes, soufflés and desser ts.

▯ The following foods are not suitable for freezing:

Types of vegetables, which are usually consumed raw, such as lettuce or radishes, eggs in shells, grapes, whole apples, pears and peaches, hardboiled eggs, yoghur t, soured milk, sour cream, crème fraîche and mayonnaise.

Packing frozen food

To prevent food from losing its flavour or dr ying out, place in air tight containers.

1.

Place food in packaging.

2.

Remove air.

3.

Seal the wrapping.

4.

Label packaging with contents and date of freezing.
