1. Corn on the cob
Place in the freezer immediately - you can place it in cob and all, or cook it for 6 minutes and remove from the cob with a knife - it takes up less space.

2. Avocados and guacamole

Cut the avocados in half or you can dice or puree them, put in a bag or container, drizzle with lemon juice and freeze. Specifying the number of avocados allows you to thaw the amount needed for your recipe. Keep in the freezer for up to six months.

3. Hummus

Hummus freezes well whether it's quick homemade hummus or a special that you enjoy. Put it in a freezer container - that's all. Thaw in the refrigerator for a day, then mix well.

4. Garlic and ginger

Place the garlic or ginger in a container and put in the freezer. Make sure the garlic is in a tight container. The ginger will not be crisp, but it will be delicious.

5. Chips

Okay, I admit, I've never had too many chips or even chips that are nearing the expiration date, but if it's a problem at home, put them in the freezer.

6. Buttermilk, milk, and cream for cooking

Simply put them in the freezer, but make sure you open the container and have some space to allow freezing.

7. Flour

Like many foods, the flour lasts longer in the freezer. Most bakers prefer to keep their flour frozen, as cold ingredients to make a crust of puff pastry.

8. Peanut butter and other seeds or nuts

Simply put these in the freezer.

9. Eggs without shells

Caster your eggs and mix slightly. Place eggs in bags or bins for 6 to 8 months for recipes or for scrambled eggs. Let them defrost in the refrigerator before using. Indicate the number of eggs in each container.

10. Cooked rice and pasta

You can save time by cooking large portions of pasta or regular rice and freeze them in individual portions for later use such as for lunch. When you are ready to eat, sprinkle the pasta with a little water and heat in the microwave.

11. Chicken broth

Fresh chicken broth is super simple to make, but it does not last very long in the fridge. Place it in the freezer, it can last up to 6 months.

12. Pesto sauces

Basil is very easy to grow and pesto super easy to make with or without pine nuts. Spread your pesto on a cookie sheet and freeze. Remove and cut into a square of the desired size and freeze by separating with wax paper. For sauces, make sure you do not overfill and leave room for content expansion.

13. Tomatoes

Place the tomatoes in bags or dishes in the freezer. To peel the tomatoes for sauces, put the frozen tomatoes in cold water and the skin will peel off.

14. Fresh herbs

In olive oil or just in a paper bag.

15. Tortillas and other bread

Tortillas and bread can be frozen for months. This is a good way to stock up on healthy bread during specials.

16. Cookie dough

When making cookies, take the opportunity to do more and freeze them to save time.

17. Chocolate

All nuggets and other chocolate should be kept in the freezer to keep their freshness.

18. Potatoes

Blanch the peeled potatoes for 3 to 5 minutes, immerse in ice-cold water for 10 minutes, remove, dry and cool before putting in bags and freezer.

19. Mushrooms
Wash, steam 3 to 4 minutes, cool, put on a baking sheet, freeze and come out to put in bags. They thaw quickly in the refrigerator.

20. Walnuts

The nuts are best kept in the freezer or at least in the fridge. You do not even have to thaw them.

21. Lemon

Freeze the whole lemon and grated it on your favorite dishes!
