KT BS: To blanch or not to blanch... (24) BS: To blanch or not to blanch... 06 Aug 13

Okay, all you gardeners out there, time to think about putting up some veggies for the winter. With regard to snap peas (edible pea pods) -   to blanch or not to blanch, that is the question.

It's about 50-50 according to what I've read on-line. Those opposed say the necessity to blanch went out with the availability of better quality freezers. I'd love to eliminate that step    if I can, but want to find top quality when I go to use them this winter.

And how about Kale? Anybody ever freeze it with good results?

Thanks for any thoughts from the seasoned gardeners in mudville!
