Remember, we are budget conscious and must get used to freezing this season's ripened fruit properly. I've tried buying those big frozen mixed fruit bags, but at almost $8 a pop, it just didn't fit neatly into my monthly budget. Like I mentioned, Aldi's had blueberry boxes for $1.30. I bought three, and rolled them into a Ziploc bag, and popped them into the freezer. It filled that gallon Ziploc bag just a couple of inches from the top! Then I took my basket of peaches ($2.50 at my Farmer's Market), washed each carefully, patted each for dryness, and began slicing them. Slices should be about 1/2 inch. You can get about 6-8 slices per peach. I placed them on a cookie sheet and popped them into the freezer till frozen solid. You don't even have to lay them delicately beside each other. Just place by handfuls to make a single layer. When frozen, pop them out into a Ziploc bag. Another almost full frozen bag of fresh fruit! If you listened to my last blog, you may already have bags of pineapple and strawberries in the freezer. Try using a combo of pineapple and strawberries or pineapple, strawberries, and blueberries. Best of all there is no added preservatives to keep frui
