  • Blanching Tips:
  • Blanching stops the action of enzymes in vegetables that could cause them to dis-colour, toughen, and sometimes lose flavours 
  • Always blanch your ingredients in boiling water with the pot uncovered
  • Blanch in small batches so that you don't cool the water below boiling
  • Cool blanched ingredients immediately by placing them from the boiling water into a bowl of ice water.
  • Drain and dry vegetables well and then transfer on a flat tray into the freezer as soon as possible
