We recently have been given a new-to-us upright freezer. I'm very excited about putting it to good use, especially as our current freezer is small and overflowing.
There have been several posts lately asking about how specific foods can be freezed for long-term storage. Does anyone know of a post or a website which has an extensive list of foods that are good for freezing and directions for freezing them? I would really love to look at a resource which talks about freezing foods for storage extensively.
I already freeze the following for food storage:
stale bread (for meatloaf, croutons)
in addition to the customary frozen meats, prepackaged veggies, orange juice, etc.
Does anyone have info on freezing dried beans, rice and grains, flours, pastas, potatoes, yeast bricks? I try very hard to buy "ingredients" instead of insta-food. If possible, these are some things I'd like to freeze and start keeping on hand. My understanding is that potatoes freeze poorly, so how do frozen hashbrowns and frozen fries get made?
