Freeze Fresh: The Ultimate Guide to Preserving 55 Fruits and Vegetables for Maximum Flavor and Versatility is a reference/cookbook that belongs in every kitchen. With food prices skyrocketing, it’s especially important to eliminate waste and preserve the food that we have either grown or purchased.

This excellent book outlines the techniques of freezing fruits and vegetables so that they are usable in recipes. The information is well-written and easy to understand. There are 55 different fruits and vegetables featured, and the author explains how to freeze them successfully. Some readers will find that fruits and vegetables that they previously thought weren’t freezable (like cucumbers and lettuce), actually are. Schmidt also includes recipes for using the frozen products. The recipes are for dishes people will actually want to make; they are written in the traditional manner, and can be easily made by both beginning and advanced cooks. Recipes include appetizers, salads, soups, side dishes, jams and jellies, main dishes, and desserts. The information is timely and the techniques for freezing have been modernized to make it easier than past practices. There are also beautiful photographs of step-by-step instructions, as well as the fruits and vegetables and also the recipes.

No matter what vegetables and fruits readers favor, there is something here for everyone. This book is highly recommended and is not only a good reference, but also a great cookbook. It belongs on every cookbook shelf.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
