Quick Answers



Why can mature onions be frozen without blanching?

Unlike other vegetables, mature onions do not lose quality during freezer storage if their enzymes are not destroyed by blanching before freezing. Some of the characteristic flavor of onions is lost if this vegetable is blanched before freezing.
