If you are looking to keep your foods fresher longer – and who isn’t? – you need look no further than your freezer.

Freezing is an easy and convenient way to preserve food. By freezing leftovers and foods that will spoil before you use them, you can save money and reduce food waste.

As a general rule, you can keep fruits and vegetables in the freezer for up to a year, poultry for six to nine months, fish for three to six months, and ground meat for three to four months. Use resealable freezer bags or freezer-safe plastic containers and label them with the date of storage.

But you can freeze many more food items than you probably realized. Here is our top 16 list of foods you didn’t know you could freeze.

1. Garlic – You can freeze whole garlic, garlic cloves or chopped fresh garlic. Frozen garlic does lose some of its texture, but the flavor remains intact.

2. Corn – You can freeze fresh-picked corn on the cob for up to one year. Pack it in freezer bags — husk and silk and all. For store-bought corn, husk and blanch it before freezing.

  • According to my grandpa, you could put anything in the freezer, and it magically lasted forever.

    Eating at his lake cabin was always an adventure.
