    Hello
    First off, if this in the wrong place im sorry. I really wasnt sure where to put it.
    My partner doesnt eat a lot of veg whereas I do. I dont buy alot in because I usually cant eat it before it goes off, so I feel im losing out.
    My question is if I went bulk shopping for veg are there any veg which could not be frozen for use at a later date?
    Im thinking of buying in different veggies, slicing, dicing etc and freezing so I can de frost and use when I want.

    Also can I freeze fresh herbs?

    Thanks alot

    Vicky

    My friend (an older batchelor) told me that the easiest way to do veg for one (which is more or less what you're doing) is to cook enough for 4 days. When cooled just pop days 2, 3 & 4 in the fridge. It keeps really well, so all you have to do is warm it up in the microwave.

    It does mean you end up eating the same type of veg for 3 or 4 days, but it is more practical. I tend to do only 3 days worth though.

    frozen veg available includes ( but is probably not limited to ) :-

    cauliflower
    cabbage ( savoy at least )
    carrots
    peas
    brocolli
    sprouts
    parsnips ( though they tend to be pre-roasted )
    onion
    etc

    you can get frozen "fresh" herbs etc from sainburys at least ( and most likely the other main supermarkets.. )
