Freh Vegetables, Blanch & Freeze?
My neighbor gave my husband fresh okra, fresh green beans, fresh, jalapeno peppers, fresh tomatoes, and fresh red peas. There are only 2 of us in the family and I have never dealt with how to handle fresh vegetables. What do you do with the peas after shucking them and you want to freeze them? Do I blanche the vegetables first and then freeze? Tomatoes will be eaten right away. No problem there. Hot peppers I normally don't buy them until I need them for a recipe and I don't want them to go to waste so wonder if they can be frozen. Okra, never ate it and don't know what to do. Fresh string beans, blanch & freeze. If someone could either let me know if blanching & then freezing is the right way. I would hate to waste any of these fresh vegetables. Thanks!
