Tip freezing berries
Berries go soft when defrosted, but don’t lose any
flavour. Store a bag in your freezer and whizz with
yogurt to make a smoothie, push through a sieve
to make a sauce, or add a handful into a crumble. Are frozen foods good for me?
Frozen fruit and veg can be healthier than fresh as
most are frozen the day they are picked. They retain
their vitamins for longer than stored produce.
Freezing is a natural preservative and most items
will keep for a long time without losing nutritional
benefits – the taste and texture may change though.
