Preparing Vegetables  Item Number: preparing-vegetables

Blanch or steam all vegetables, except for peppers and onions, before freezing.

Blanching is the process of heating food quickly, with water or steam, to inactivate enzymes that cause spoilage. Microorganisms are also reduced at this time. Once the food is heated, it is immediately placed in ice water to stop any further cooking of the food.
