Home Economics, Greenbrier County Your vegetable garden is in .... WheTd t-{h-'ewater is E{oii~g, put peak produclion, or perhaps you the vegetables in a wire basket got carried away at the pick- your-own produce market. El- /her way, now you're ready 1o pop some of those Rood vege- tables into lhe freezer. But please, don't forget to blanche them first. Blanching --- dunking vege- tables in boiling hot water before freezing -- keeps quality high. Heat from lhe water stops en- zyme action in the vegetables. This prevents food from aging during freezer storage. If you skip this vital step, your vegetables can drop in qt|ality within two monihs in the freezer. They also won't look or taste as good as blanched vege- tables, and they'll lose vitamins A, C, thimnine, and riboflavin. On the olher hand, if vege tables are blanched for the righl amount of time, they'll keep 8 to 12 months in the freezer with little loss in eating quality or nu- IrilJon. The easiest, safest method of blanching vegetables at home is: Put enough waler in a blan- cher or large kettle lo surround the small amount of vegetables you'll do at one time -- usually one gallon of water per pound of vegetables, or two gallons per pound of leafy greens. or blancher basket. Submerge the vegetables in the boiling wa- ter, cover the pan and start counting oft" the specified blanching lime. When the lime Is up, remove the vegetables. Don't over-blanche. Then plunge lhe basket of vegetables Into Ice water. This stops the cooking right awa~; Drain thoroughly and dry with paper towels. Any extra wa- ter on the vegetables will form ice crystals in freezing. Once the vegetable is drained and dried, pack in moisture-va- por-proof containers. Then freeze the packages immediately In the coldest part of the freezer. For free guide to freezing vari- ous vegetables, contact me at the Greenbrier County Co6pera- tire Extension Office. P. O.
