Are you freezing yet?

This is the hardest part of the year for me in terms of the CSA goodies.  I want to eat. them. all. now.   But in the middle of winter it sure is nice to have a helping of (as close as we can get to) farm freshness.   So, instead of sauteed beans last weekend, I blanched and froze them.  And instead of roasted broccoli tonight, I will do the same to that......or maybe make a cream of broccoli soup to freeze.........early next week when it cools down a bit.   I am still debating between kale chips now, or having sauteed kale to enjoy in an omelette in December though.

I did totally fail in the freezing of strawberries this year though, the end of the season sneaks up on me every year, and those are SO easy to freeze!  Oh well, maybe next year....

While it IS difficult to wait to enjoy them, this is a great time of year to start thinking about what you want to preserve to enjoy this winter.    Speaking of which, I am off to "jam" some blackberries!!
