5 basic things you can keep in the freezer

freezerI thought I’d share with you, 5 basic things you can keep in the freezer. With these in the freezer, you will always have the beginnings to start a meal or in a pinch, make a simple meal from scratch.

Most of you savvy people will probably have some of these in your freezer already, but some of these you may had never considered to put in the freezer for future use.

Lets get to the list.

1 – Bread – we always have bread in the freezer. It can be put in the toaster straight from the freezer for toast or just leave out on a plate to defrost for a sandwich. Also, it doesn’t need to be a whole loaf. If you have half a loaf that isn’t going to get used due to a weekend away, just throw it in the freezer and it will keep for 3 months.

2 – Milk – if you have milk in your morning coffee, there is nothing worse than opening the fridge to find no milk or worse off milk. It can set your whole day off on the wrong foot. Milk can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 months. Just take it out and thaw it in the fridge before use.

3 – Butter – goes well with the bread, but is also great to keep on hand for baking. Salted butter lasts longest at 12 months and unsalted around 6 months. Also mix in some garlic and roll up in parchment paper to make a sausage shape and have some garlic butter for your steak.

4 – Eggs – I know it seems like an odd thing to freeze but it is really handy to have in the freezer. Crack the eggs into freezer bags or sealable container and will keep in the freezer for 6+ months. Defrost and use , great for an omelette.

5 – Wine – no i don’t mean bottles of wine and yes i know that once a bottle is open there are rarely any leftovers. On the off chance that there is, you can put it into an ice cube tray and into the freezer for future use in stews and sauces.
