Did you get some money back this year with your tax refund?  Consider investing in a freezer chest!  We did this a few years ago, and it continues to bless our family.

Here are some things you can freeze that perhaps you didn’t think of before:

  • Cheese (I like shredding large blocks of cheddar and freezing in a ziploc bag.)
  • Butter (I stick pounds of butter in the freezer and stock up when I find them at a good price)
  • Bananas (Before they spoil I freeze them for banana bread. They turn black in the freezer but are great in recipes or smoothies.)
  • Homemade Freezer Jams
  • Christmas Cookies
  • Pancakes (We make large batches and then freeze them. Then, just toast them up for breakfast. We don’t really eat syrup in our home. Just a little butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar.)
  • Pre-Cooked Ground Beef (An easy method is to boil hamburger, drain and then freeze flat in bags)
  • Homemade Cookie Dough (Make the mix, form into balls, flash freeze on trays. Then, transfer to freezer bags.)
  • Almonds
  • Coffee
  • Turkey/Chicken Bones (If I don’t have time to make stock right away, I freeze entire carcasses to make it later.)
  • Carrots, Onions and Celery (Before these go bad, I stick them in the freezer to make stock with.)
  • Cooked rice
  • Casseroles (Many times I’ll double or triple a recipe and freeze them for easy dinners on hand)
  • Leftover tomato paste
  • Candles (to help them burn slower)
  • Sliced Pepperoni
  • Ginger root
  • Gallons of milk
What are some things you like to freeze?
I’m always looking for new ideas!

One thought on “A Great Investment: The Freezer Chest

  1. I usually cook for lunch beforehand and put them in the freezer so when in the morning I just put them in the oven and my lunch is ready. I didn't know that candles should be frozen also to avoid melting right away.
