Food: Week 12 - Frozen Vegetables
It’s veggie week again. This week store 5 one-pound of frozen or 10 cans or pints of vegetables per family member.
For those of you not crazy about canned vegetables use them in soups, crock pot recipes, and stews. They will take on the flavors of the sauces and broths. Also, puree them and add them to meatloaf, meatballs, spaghetti sauce, and soup broths.
During a water crisis, like the one we just experienced in Texas in recent years, drain the liquid the canned vegetables were packed in after the vegetables are cooked and save it to use in cooking potatoes or other fresh vegetables. Drain fruit and use the juice to cook oatmeal, cream of wheat, or other items you would sweeten after cooking. Liquids fruit is packed in may also be used in place of water when using cake mixes or even making cornbread.
