I mostly freeze blackberries,blueberries,raspberries,strawberries & bananas.
I usually buy them already frozen,except bananas of course.I try to get organic when I can,but my income is pretty low & its rare to find frozen organics.I heard not to rinse berries unless you're using them shortly after.I bought 2.25lbs driscoll's organic raspberries for $6,was on sale $1 per 6oz.I just packed them in freezer bags.
How should these be prepared for freezing?
Berries
Banana
Pineapple
Citrus fruits(lemons/limes etc.)
Kale,spinach,watercress & celery
Ginger & yucca root
Also I was wondering why wild foods aren't labeled organic,like wild blueberries.
