Stocking up


The past few days have been filled with fruit. Both at the store and the farmer's markets, we've been busily stocking up on fresh, organic (where possible), berries and peaches to freeze for winter.

Our technique is simple: spread fruit on cookie sheets and freeze for a few hours. Then place the fruit in freezer bags until you're ready to use.

Freezing the fruit on trays first ensures that the pieces are individually frozen and that they won't come out in a solid lump when you're ready for them.

Of course, not all the fruit made it into the freezer! Anna got to enjoy her first blueberry pie. A last taste of summer (for now, anyway!).
