Make Your Own Broccoli

Pin It
 I have broccoli in my own freezer bags, that I put together, especially when they are $.49/lb!  With some love and time putting it together, it is a well-worth way to save money in your wallet.  I have tried just freezing some chopped broccoli without blanching it, and ended up throwing it all out from a bad/spoiled  taste!

Just take your broccoli crowns, and dunk them into boiling water for 3-5 minutes.
Then, place them into ice cold water to stop the cooking process.
 When ready, start prepping/chopping to the desired form.
I place 3-4 cups of chopped broccoli into freezer bags.  Don't forget to label and date.

 To find out how to blanch your bargains, look at this website for some guidance, How & Why to Blanch Vegetables for Freezing.
