How to freeze goulash

New Year is a wonderful occasion to surprise loved oneshis culinary skills. At this time, the table literally bursts with an abundance of delicious dishes and snacks. But, when the holiday comes to an end, you may find that not all the food was eaten. What to do with the remaining products? One possible way can be freezing. As in any case, here there are subtleties. That's why we wrote about the basic rules that must be observed when freezing food.

1. Only fresh food is suitable for freezing

Please note that the following products are not suitable for freezing:

  • tomatoes;
  • green lettuce leaves;
  • fresh fruit and vegetable salads;
  • whole apples;
  • plums and pears.

2. Thoroughly prepare the products for freezing

Wait until the meat has cooled down to room temperature. If necessary, divide it into portions.

Thoroughly rinse the fruit, remove the leaves, seeds, stems and, if necessary, the rind, and then place in the freezer.

3. Pack the food in the right amount

Maximum weight for one package:

  • fruits and vegetables - up to 1 kilogram;
