Welcome back! If you are just now joining us on this series, be sure to visit Part 1 – The Benefits of Freezer Cooking…
Today I wanted to share with you the different methods of freezer cooking. Here are some of the most common methods:
- Once a Month Cooking – This is where you take an entire day or two and you cook for an entire month.
- Bulk Cooking – This is where you do mini sessions, throughout the month .
- Multiple Meal cooking – This is where you cook daily, but you make more than one meal. You’ll eat one then freeze the others.
- Freezing Leftovers – This is when you take leftovers and freeze them into another meal, a single meal or to add on to a future meal.
Which method is best? Well that all depends on you. Depending on your schedule the once a month cooking may work best for you. Others may want to double or triple their meals so the multiple meal option may be better for them.
I started off with the once a month cooking and for me it’s exhausting, especially doing it by myself. Once the weekend was over, I was thrilled and the benefits paid off when we got to enjoy all of the meals I made.
You can set an hour a day to get your freezer cooking done. You can save on time and cooking by getting a few friends involved and do the multiple meal cooking method. Where 5 of your friends each makes 5 of the same meals. Then Swap. You instantly have 5 different meals. Like I said choose the method that will work for you and your schedule.
Before we move on to part 3 – I want to make sure that each of you understand with freezer cooking you still have to “cook” the meal. When you pull it from your freezer some of the recipes will require you to defrost them and all of the require you to “cook” them. What you are saving on is the preparation time and clean up time.
