    i just bought lots of organic fruits and veggies tonight and want to freeze what i can, but i didn't know if i can just freeze it without blanching it? i nkow boiling it would nix some of the nutrients and i want to avoid that if possible. any input??

    i bought:

    carrots
    mango
    wheat grass
    bean and clover sprouts
    mushrooms
    apple
    pear
    orange
    broccoli
    dates
    and i think there's more that i can't remember off the top of my head ;)

    When I got fresh fruits and veggies, I cut them up in small hermit size pieces and kept some in the fridge and then froze the rest in those food saver bags, the ones that suck out all the air. I would do that as it will stay fresh longer, you can just make small bags (with mine I can make the bags any size I want) and add a weeks worth in then freeze them and just take out a weeks worth each week. It really works for me. I only have 3 crabs and I had a whole coconut, squash and pumpkin.

    You can puree your veggies...baby food consistency....and freeze it in ice cube trays. Then store the veggie cubes in plastic bags.
