Fresh from the garden vegetables make any meal better. While many fresh garden vegetables are available this time of year, there is a way to have the same fresh selections all year long. With a few simple steps, people can freeze and store almost every garden vegetable. Having high-quality frozen vegetables that keep their taste and nutrients relies heavily on the selection, preparation and storing processes.
Bridgette Brannon, an Alabama Extension food safety and quality regional agent, said the best vegetables to freeze are ones that are picked at peak freshness.
