Our CSA has been quite bountiful. Bountiful to the point where we cannot get through it all and I am not one to waste food. By no means am I a canner so I have decided to freeze some of our food so it does not all end up in the composter.
We get A LOT of corn on the cob, which is nice for summer, but it really is too much for just the two of us as my son has no interest in it as of yet. Last week I had a total of ten cobs and realized I had to do something or else it would just end up getting tossed out. For some reason I was always under the impression it was a hassle to cook, blanch and freeze. I am not sure if I was afraid or did not want to do the ice bath step, don't question me, but it is really easy to do and that my friends, is a good thing.
Freezing Corn from Simply Canning. I chose to cut the kernels from the cob, but you can freeze whole cob if you choose.
Today I had extra cauliflower and it is currently in the freezer waiting to be tossed in a bag for a future use.

I have dried some herbs out already as well. Sage is currently drying upside down in my dining room and the oregano has already been done.
Do you freeze your summer veggies as well? Or do you can them?
