We have some great products available to those looking for a safe and plastic-free way to store the bounty from the garden.
There is our 4 litre / 1 gallon rectangular stainless steel airtight container which can accommodate a large batch of frozen tomatoes, strawberries, blueberries, and so on. We love this container. We use it a lot to bring large batches of food to a potluck or family dinner. We also use it to conserve our bread as it sits nicely on our countertop and it has the perfect shape. Available for $62.95.
Now, we also have a set of 4 large stainless steel airtight food containers. Four convenient sizes are included: 18 cm / 7 1/16" diameter 1.75 L / 59 oz. capacity; 20 cm / 7 7/8" diameter, 2 L / 68 oz. capacity; 23 cm / 9" diameter 4 L / 135 oz. capacity; 26 cm / 10 1/4" diameter, 6 L / 203 oz. capacity. The four containers nest into one another completely (with the lids on) thus optimizing storage space. Available for $99.95 (for all four).
Freezing fruits and veggies is an excellent way to conserve them for future use. Unfortunately, Mother Nature does not necessarily offer the same bounty throughout the year. She provides many things all at once during the summer months. Where we live, it is now the time for beans and tomatoes. So we are eating a lot of bean and tomato salads these days, but we are also freezing some extra for this winter. This not only saves money and provides wholesome veggies during the winter, but it also cuts out the greenhouse gas emissions such produce would create if it had to travel to end up at our local grocery store throughout the rest of the year.
