What fruits do you freeze?

chica Jul 20, 2006 09:19 PM

I went cherry-picking a couple weeks ago and returned with more than one family can decently eat in a week, so I froze some. They are SO deliciously sweet and tart after they're thawed a bit, but still very cold, like popsicles!

I also love freezing grapes, and I've had the frozen strawberries with white chocolate from Whole Foods and TJ's.

Anything else?

    I love frozen snickers. Is that a fruit? :)
    We've been freezing tart cherries also, so we'll have summer cherry pies in February.

      Star fruit


      Pomegranate (just the seeds; not the entire bulb)

        Any type of berry, mangoes (without the pit), peaches (once again, no pit and skinned) and watermelon (seedless variety, no rind and cut into chunks)

          Peaches freeze great as do necterines. I've made peach cobbler in the middle of the winter from summer peaches and it's been great. I see no reason you couldn't freeze apricots and plums also, both are stone fruit. Needless to say, all need to be sliced before freezing.

            Bananas, berries, grapes, mango chunks, pineapple chunks. I sometimes buy bags of frozen mixed fruit and eat it while it's only a little thawed...

              Not in season now, but apples freeze very well. We buy fresh-picked apples in the fall, make a pile of apple pies which we freeze to eat through the winter.

                Frozen snickers are great!
                Second freezing some grapes, too.
                Now that blueberries are officially in season (or so I was told), I have a batch in the freezer and am waiting. A little impatiently.
