Quick Answers

 

 

Are there some vegetables that do not freeze well?


There are several vegetables that do not freeze well: Foods that contain a lot of water such as lettuce, cabbage, celery, cucumbers, radishes, green onions and tomatoes lose their crisp texture and become limp. Tomatoes can be stewed and then frozen to be used in sauces, soups, etc. Potatoes do not have good texture after they are frozen. They may also darken. It is better to add potatoes to such foods as soups and stews when they are defrosted and heated for serving.
