How To Freeze Broccoli

  How To Freeze Broccoli, its very simple! So fare this season I have harvested 16 heads of broccoli and I have frozen 8 heads, which made up 16 quart bags for later use. Yummy!!

  Supplies you will need: Large Pot, knife, couple bags of ice, quart or gallon size freezer bags, Sharpie, Large Strainer Ladle,

Step 1: Wash it in a sink full of water, I mix a hand full of Sea Salts in with it. It helps with bugs!
Step 2: Cut broccoli up to sizes that are gonna be easy to eat.
Step 3: Bring a Large pot of water to boil.
Step 4: Put cut up broccoli in boiling water, for 4 to 5 minutes. Note: do amounts that are easy to handle.

While this is boiling, fill up sink half way with water and dump a half bag of ice in.

Step 5: After 4 to 5 minutes ladle the broccoli into the ice water, this will stop it from cooking. Let it set in the for about 5 minutes.
Step 6: Ladle the broccoli out of the ice water and allow water to drain off. I laid mine out on a clean dis towel, you could just use a big strainer. Whatever you choose will be finr.
Step 7: Put broccoli in Freezer bags, label with sharpie. try to get air out of bad. But you don't have to get it all out.
Step 8: Place in freezer til you are ready to cook. Its that easy!!

  If I can do it, anyone of you can do it. And by the way Jesus Loves You!
