Betty Crocker is embarking on a campaign to #tastenotwaste. As a global food company, General Mills recognizes food waste is a major social, environmental, and economic challenge and is invested in change. We are continuously working to improve production processes that eliminate waste and are partnering with Feeding America to make sure uneaten food gets from stores and restaurants to people, not garbage cans. But there is one place we need help—at home, where 40% of food waste happens. The stats about consumer food waste at home might surprise you.
Don’t you wish you could enjoy the freshest of summer fruit all year long? Unfortunately, the world doesn’t work that way. As someone who lives in a place where truly fresh fruit is hard to come by outside the (short) summer months, I gobble up fresh fruit while I can, but I also use my freezer to preserve it so its deliciousness can be enjoyed long after summer is gone.
Today, I am sharing a few tips and tricks I’ve picked up along the way for freezing summer berries, peaches and melons. The same methods can be applied to other kinds of fruit, as well, so please don’t let this guidance limit you!
