Nothing is as satisfying as eating ripe fresh fruits straight out of hand. However, during those times when this is far from possible, freezing your fruit is your next best option. Freezing fruits is an economical, no-brainer, and easy to do method of extending the life of all things fresh and sweet sitting on the counter.
According to Susannah Chen, putting your fruits in your freezer does change their texture. However, this is the best way for you to preserve all bits of flavor with no need for you to get the help of additives or sugar.
This can come in handy if you got a surplus of something or if you bought fruits during a crazy sale. This is also helpful if you don’t like to buy a certain ingredient on a regular basis but you know that you need a certain amount of it at one point in the near future.
You can always keep frozen apples, bananas, cherries, or berries on hand to prepare some delicious desserts like cobblers, grunts, clafoutis, and pies. You can also use your frozen topical fruits to add flavor to your smoothies while you keep them cold at the same time.
You can also freeze the zest and juice of citrus to add mid-cooking every time you need it, whether to add zest in your loaf of pound cake or add acidity to the pan sauce.
Finally, for the most refreshing treats, fruits such as honeydew, bananas, and grapes taste wonderful if you eat them straight out of your freezer.
