Re: Freezing and Prepping
If you squirt lime on the avacado, it should help keep it from turning brown. But, some people like to avoid citrus fruits until 1 year because they can be a high allergy food. From what I've read, you can not freeze avacado. I usually just eat them fresh and don't save the left overs because of the turning brown thing...it grosses me out. What I do for veggies is I just buy already frozen bags from the store. When I cook meals, I usually use fresh (depending on the veggy), but for snacks or something, I just pour some out of the bag and microwave. Frozen veggies are usually a good option because they are frozen at the peak of freshness. You can buy them organic too if you want. I think it saves a lot of time. Store bought frozen fruit, on the other hand, doesn't seem to have as much flavor. I'll use it for smoothies for my daughter, but I try to stick to fresh fruit for snacks. Although, I will throw some frozen blueberries into oatmeal or pancakes. I don't know if fruit you freeze yourself would have the same flavor issue or not. I wouldn't cook it first, if you are going to do it. Just wash, cut and flash freeze (like the pp said with freezing on the cookie sheet first), then put into an airtight container. Hope that helped. Good luck!
