5 Foods You Would Never Think to Freeze

in the year, we wrote an article about foods that you should never freeze. Now, we think it is time to take the opposite approach and
enlighten our readers about foods that can be frozen without
Baked Goods
kinds of baked goods can be stored in the freezer to last longer than
they would sitting on your countertop. Instead of lasting one or two
weeks, frozen baked goods will stay fresh in the freezer until your
sweet tooth can’t resist them anymore. All kinds of baked items can
be frozen: brownies, cookies, muffins, bagels, and even whole cakes –
just make sure to put the icing on them after defrosting, not before
Fresh Fruit
next time your favorite fruit goes on sale, you can stock up knowing
that you can freeze it and enjoy it for months to come. If you are
planning on freezing your fruit, make sure to wash and dry it
beforehand. You should also complete any required cutting or pitting
and freeze in small portions so you have convenient grab-and-go
can be frozen in all forms, from baking chips to full-sized bars, but
you need to take special care. Chocolate can be susceptible to
picking up odors in your freezer, so wrap it well and put it in an
air-tight container. You should also refrigerate the chocolate for 24
hours immediately before and after freezing it
to help maintain its taste and consistency.
herbs won’t be visually appealing enough to be used as garnish after
freezing, but their flavor will preserve just fine. Arrange a single
layer of herbs on a baking sheet and freeze as is. After the herbs
have frozen, you can peel them off of the baking sheet and store them
in a container to save space.
Pasta Sauce
you ever made a single serving of pasta for yourself, and wound up
throwing away the majority of the jar of sauce because you couldn’t
eat it fast enough? Prevent that from happening again by freezing
your tomato or pesto sauce in an ice cube tray and heating up
individual-sized servings as needed.

Go Green: 7 Ways To Make Your Kitchen More Energy Efficient

Ten years ago, this word was simply a color. Now, it is a lifestyle.
Individuals and businesses alike are constantly changing in order to
consume less energy and reduce their carbon footprint. These changes
range from paying their bills online in order to reduce paper waste
all the way to installing solar panels on their roof.

If you
are thinking about joining the green movement, here are seven ways
you can save both energy and money in your kitchen.
Buy Energy-Efficient
This is the most
obvious step if you are in the market for new appliances.
EngeryStar.gov is a great place to start your search. The Energy Star
label is given to energy efficient products by the EPA. You can find
a list of their most efficient products here.
Use the Right Sized
Burner on Your Stove.
This may
sound minuscule, but putting a 6” pan on an 8” burner can waste
almost half of the heat generated by your stove top. Also, covering
your pots and pans with tight-fitting lids helps retain heat and
allows for faster cook times.
Use the Microwave and
Toaster Oven for Small Meals.
Star estimates that you can reduce energy by up to 50% when cooking
small meals in a microwave or toaster oven instead of a conventional
Location, Location,
Where in the kitchen
you place your appliances can make a difference when it comes to
energy efficiency. Refrigerators, for example, should be kept six to
eight inches away from the wall, out of direct sunlight and away from
heat-generating appliances such as your stove.
Be Mindful When Washing
If you don’t have many
dishes to wash, fill a large container with soapy water and another
one with rinse water in order to avoid constantly running your
faucet. If you have too many dishes for that, your dishwasher will
actually be more efficient, as long as it is a full load. Also,
pre-washing your dishes is not necessary. Most modern dishwashers are
powerful enough to blast dirty food off your plates without the extra
Unplug When Idle. Even
though you only use your toaster during the morning, it will use
electricity all day if you leave it plugged in. Same thing goes for
your coffee maker, electric can opener and waffle iron. Even when
these devices are turned off, they are still using electricity if
they are plugged in to an outlet. Unplugging your small appliances
when not in use can result in noticeable savings on your utility
Keep it Closed. Every
time you open the refrigerator door, cold air escapes and the fridge
must now work to restore its internal temperature. Constantly opening
the oven door to check on your food while it’s cooking does the same
thing. Instead of opening the oven door to see if your food is ready,
simply turn on the oven light and peek through the glass. When going
to the fridge, you should already know what you want so the door
stays open for as short of a time as possible.
broken or defective refrigerator can also significantly hinder your
energy efficiency. If you face this problem, the solution is simpler
than you think. Instead of breaking the bank and buying a brand new
model, give 24/7 Refrigerator Service a call at 866-782-9376. Our professional
technicians have been repairing broken and busted fridges for over 50
years! With same day service to New York City, Long Island, New
