I have a freezer. It’s a relatively small chest freezer, of which I don’t care for the dumping and digging that occur, but it fits my space and I love it being there. The best thing about a freezer, aside from storing monthly shops of beef, chicken, tortillas, nuts and grains, the best thing is summer produce in winter. Just look at this tomatillo salsa:

campari for the cook

Amazing color! Added to the frozen garden tomatillos, were frozen roasted jalapeƱos, some pan roasted garlic, and salt. Simple, delicious, fast. I don’t remember if this sauce became tacos or enchiladas or what, but having access to just-picked foods in my freezer reminds me, again, how lucky I am. Now’s the time to think gardens, veggie-growing, and putting away for next winter. Do it!
