    Default Freezing fruits

    DH does most of the shopping, he spoils me by not making me bag and

    lift all the bags of groceries. It is sweet but sometimes a royal

    pain....

    I ask him to buy a list of fruits that I know will be eaten as snacks

    before they go bad. I ask for 4 apples, 3 bananas, 5 asian pears, and a

    couple of oranges. He brings home a LARGE bag of each. This has

    happened a few times and I have had to throw out the dead fruit a week

    later that no one ate. I have talked to him about it and he now buys a

    produce bag full of each instead of the large economy sized bags that

    are prepackaged.



    What I need to know is how to freeze these fruits? Do they need to be

    prepped a certain way? Can they be frozen whole? If there is no good

    way to freeze them, any recipes for using them up that will freeze well?

    I do not own a pressure cooker or canning jars, and have never really

    wanted to start canning anything. I know alot of people preserve fruits

    this way.



    Any advice would be helpful, other than telling DH not to do this,

    already tried that a couple times. LOL.

    I would
    guess you could freeze just about any fruit. If it came out mushy you could always throw it
    in the blender and make a smoothie out of it. Or use it as a liquid in baking.
