10 FOODS YOU COULD FREEZE ANYTIME

Herbs

Place two tablespoons of chopped fresh rosemary, sage, parsley, or thyme and water to cover in each well of the ice cube tray and freeze

Butter

One day before you're primed to preheat the oven for your next butter-filled recipe, transfer as many sticks as you need to the refrigerator

Avocado

The frozen banana smoothie hack is a well-known one, and you can employ the same strategy for avocados as well.

Garlic

Then pop the baking sheet into the freezer. Once the garlic is firm, place the frozen pieces into a freezer-safe bag or container with a lid

Fresh Pasta

tender and tasty fresh pasta have a shorter shelf life. Luckily, you can stretch the lifespan of everything from spaghetti to sheets of lasagna.

Raw Egg Whites

 the whites freeze and crystalize, the cell structures break down and upon thawing moisture will be released leading to a watery product that loses texture

Buttermilk

Place some small paper cups on the tray and fill each with a half cup of buttermilk each, then place the tray in the freezer 

Bacon

I love keeping bacon in the freezer since you never know when you need to make breakfast…or put bacon in anything store for up to six months

Flour

While refined white flours can last at room temp for years, due to their limited fat content, whole-grain and nut flours go bad much quicker

Citrus Zest

While whole citrus fruits or citrus slices freeze poorly due to their large liquid content, the zests (AKA peels) are perfect for freezing
