Vegetable Blanching Time Table

Feb 8, 2013 by

Often vegetables need to be blanched before freezing or canning. Here is a quick and simple guide for blanching common vegetables. Blanching vegetables helps preserve color and texture. After blanching vegetables in boiling water immerse immediately into cold water then drain. I often reuse the same water again and again. A large pasta type pot works great for blanching.

Vegetables will need to cool for the same time as they are blanched. read morePin...
