A Treasure Trove of Shortcuts January 22, 2011

I am all about fresh AND easy.  The freezer is my friend.  Check out these “secret ingredient” freezer shortcuts from Edward Schneider’s column and accompanying comments in The New York Times.  A few I’d like to try:

  • Onions, tomatoes and garlic cooked down into a paste.  Freeze in small containers and use as a base for paella.
  • Home-made pesto frozen into ice cube trays.  Thaw and toss with pasta.
  • Chopped garlic and ginger frozen together.  Use as a base for stir fry.
