Nice on ice: 10 foods that freeze the best

1. Flour

We consistently buy flour in bulk, and inconsistently bake with it. Our solution: extending the shelf life of flour—all kinds—by putting it in the freezer.

Ginger

Not only will the shelf life go from one month to six months, but it’s much easier to grate frozen ginger! You can also mince or grate the ginger first.

Grapes

In fact, they make a great snack while still frozen. Use the same approach as bananas: put them on a tray first before transferring to a freezer-safe bag or container.

Herbs

Cilantro, basil, oregano, dill, parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme are all freezer-friendly herbs. Be sure to dry them thoroughly after harvesting, or consider portioning and initially freezing

Meat

Raw meats of all varieties—beef, pork, chicken, turkey, bacon, sausage, steak—are all just fine in the freezer. That’s why we normally buy our meat in bulk! You might want to consider portioning 

Milk

If you prefer to drink almond, soy, or another milk alternative, but still use moo juice for cooking and baking, freezing your milk is an excellent option. Instead of a week or two in the fridge

Nuts

Nuts are healthy, but man are they expensive! The last thing you’d want is for your pricey protein source to go to waste—which can happen easily, considering the oil content

Onions

Not only does it extend the life from two weeks to up to eight months, but chilled onions won’t make your eyes teary when you chop them

Peppers

However, you’ll still want to wash, remove the seeds and membrane, and slice/dice/chop your peppers before putting them in your freezer-friendly bag or container.

Seeds

Seeds and nuts go hand-in-hand, so it’s no surprise that seeds are also freezable. And also like nuts, nearly every variety is included—from hemp, sunflower, and pumpkin to poppy
