Freezing Fruits and Veggies

Do you have extra produce on your hands?  Perhaps you got a deal on greens at Soulard?  Or maybe you grew more blackberries than you should really eat in a week?  Freezing is a great way to preserve a summer bounty so you can eat delicious and nutritious food through the winter, and save some money.  Check out this great handout on how to freeze fruits and veggies shared by our friends at Operation Food Search today.

Sweet Potato & Black Bean Chili, an easy low-cost dinner that your family will like!
