Last week I happened upon a package of 4 sweet peppers marked down to $1.99! One of the easiest ways to reduce your grocery bill is to buy in-season produce. I couldn’t resist the chance to pick up peppers at $.50 each, so they came home with me.
We ate one pepper for taco night, but the rest got chopped up and flash frozen. We’ll be able to enjoy these in fajitas, salads and more far into the fall.
You don’t have to have a huge freezer to put in-season produce up for later. Even small bags of fresh veggies will save you money!
Have you frozen any produce this summer?

I keep a container in my freezer, and after dinner, the left over little bits of veggies, goes into the freezer. When I’m ready to make soup, it’s there all ready for the pot!
I should do that, good idea. Thanks! =)
Great idea Whitney, I recently got a food saver and love it. Do you have one. I think I will go to store to see what they have to offer, it’s time to start masking soups for the winter too. I usually do soups but this year I am going to use my fS and store it in bags so it doesn’t take up so much room.
I don’t have a food saver! I bet it makes a difference in the amount of air inside the bag….which definitely increases the quality of your frozen food.
Storing your soup flat in the freezer bag will also decrease defrosting time. Win win! =)
