What Not to Freeze
Freezers are wonderful inventions. They save us time and money. How many times do we head for the freezer when it's time to think about a meal? And for many of us, the freezer houses much of our emergency supply of food. But some things freeze better than others. We thought we would give
you a partial listing of things that don't freeze well.

- Fried foods (especially deep fried foods): They taste stale
- Gravies and sauces with wheat in them: They tend to separate.
- High water content vegetables (lettuce, tomatoes, celery, etc.): They get limp.
- Raw fruit: They turn dark or get mushy unless blanched.
- Potatoes: They get grainy and soft.
- Cooked pasta (unless very firm): Tends to get soft and mushy.
- Crumb toppings on casseroles: They tend to get soggy.
- Soft cake frostings: They tend to get tacky.
- Sage: It tends to get bitter.
- Cloves: It tends to get sharper in the freezer.
- Garlic: The flavor tends to get stronger when frozen.
- Salt: It tends to loose savor when frozen.
- Onions: They tend to loose their flavor.
- Green peppers: They tend to get stronger tasting when frozen
- Artificial sweeteners: they tend to lose their effectiveness once frozen.

Most spices and many extracts are altered by freezing, some getting stronger and some losing flavor. The longer they are stored, the more pronounced the change.

Most baked goods freeze well. We freeze breads, cookies, and cookie dough. If you would like to see a past article about freezing breads

In the July 10th newsletter Mary J’s Bean Salad mentioned in the directions to boil the vinegar, water, and sugar. There is no amount of the ingredients to use.

Could she please correct the usage of each ingredient?
Thank you very much.

Enjoy your newsletter Nancy and hearing about your furry critters.

Janis there are a few Chicken Noodle Soup recipes on the Recipe Message Boards under Stews and Soups, I like this one because I know it freezes well, useful for those Man-flu days!

Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe
6 Servings

Because it can be frozen, it's a meal-in-one you can take out of the freezer and reheat in minutes. (this will keep satisfactorily in the freezer for 2 months)

1.5kg whole chicken
4 carrots
3 celery sticks
3 onions
2 bay leaves
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 leek, sliced
1 garlic clove, chopped
100g dried egg noodles
2cm piece fresh ginger, grated
Chopped fresh parsley leaves and spring onions, to serve

Put the chicken in a large pan with 2 carrots and 2 celery sticks, all roughly chopped, 2 onions, quartered, and the bay leaves. Add about 2.5 litres water, to cover the chicken and veg. Bring to the boil, skim off any fat and simmer for 1 hour. Remove the chicken and strain the stock, discarding the solids.

Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Add the leek, garlic and remaining carrots, cut into cubes, and the remaining onion and celery stick, both finely chopped. Cook for 5 minutes, until tender. Add 2 litres of the strained broth and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer gently for 10 minutes.

Remove the skin and strip the meat from the chicken. Tear the meat into bite-size pieces and add to the soup. Remove from the heat and serve.

I have posted a recipe for Extra Light Scones, using Strong Flour, on the Scottish Message Board. Rather than take up too much space on the getting very busy newsletter. If my diminishing memory serves me well???, I may have got the original idea from The Great British Bake Off programme and did a few tweaks to it. It seems lengthy, but it is really for the younger, newer scone baker rather than the Professional.

Lisa's Pork and Kraut Recipe

4 to 5 lb. pork roast
2 large cans sauerkraut
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup brown sugar

Place pork roast in a dutch oven. Add about 1 cup water plus a small amount of salt and pepper. Cover and cook over very low heat for about 2 hours. Add sauerkraut, applesauce and brown sugar. Cover and simmer about 1 to 1 1/2 hours longer or until roast is falling apart. This can also be made in the oven in a covered roasting pan. Set oven at 350º for about 2 hours, then lower temperature to around 300º after adding sauerkraut. Roast for an additional 1 1/2 hours. It's also a good crockpot meal. Just add everything at once and cook for about 6 or 7 hours on low. I often use sauerkraut that comes in bags instead of canned sauerkraut. It's not quite as salty.

Susie's Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe
Nancy, Janis wants a homemade chicken noodle soup recipe. I make mine in the crock pot putting 4 skin on bone in thighs (for 2 people) with chicken stock, 1/2 to 1 cup of diced celery, 1/2 to 1 cup diced carrots and 1 medium onion diced. A just the amount of the vegetables that you use. I let this cook on low 5 hours then remove chicken to remove skin and bones then dice or shred the chicken putting the meat back in turning the crock pot to high putting the amount noodles you want. You can use the seasoning you want. I normal use salt, pepper, rosemary or bay leaves. My husband has had to adjust, over 50 years, to my liking vegetables. .Hopefully this is helpful, Janis.

Drink's Never Fail Baking Powder Biscuits Recipe

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
dash of salt
4 Tablespoons butter
3/4 cup buttermilk

Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl. Cut the butter into 1/2-inch cubes and cut into the dry ingredients using two knives or any other device which will produce a mixture of small pebbles or granules. Gradually add the buttermilk until a doughis produced. Turn the dough out on a lightly floured surface and kneed it three or four times. Roll to a thickness of about 1/2-inch and cut to desired shape. (I use a small can that sliced mushrooms
came in that I cut both ends from).

Hint: Dip the cutting edge of the can or cutter into flour before cutting out each biscuit. Place 1-inch apart on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 425 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, depending on the accuracy of your oven.
