Fill your freezer with fall flavors

Attention DIY’ers – it’s time to fill your freezer with the flavors of fall.  The Locavorious kitchen team has been busy preserving broccoli, cauliflower, pie pumpkin, and a few Brussels sprouts too, and so can you.  Here is our Locavorious DIY Guide for Freezing Vegetables to help you preserve local produce by freezing.   We recommend a 3 minute steam blanching for veggies such as broccoli, kale, collards, cauliflower, green beans and brussels sprouts, and getting it done the same day the vegetables were harvested.

For more information check out this posting or the National Center for Home Food Preservation.
