Today will cover 2 methods. Blanching and Freezing. I had some collard in the garden that needed to be cut, but I did not want to cook them. So I decided to freeze them. I washed them and rolled them up to dry in a bath towel. I then chopped them and then blanched them in 2 batches in boiling water for 3 minutes each batch. I shocked them in an ice bath then drained them and squeezed the liquid out of them . I put them in a freezer bag and purged out all of the air and put them in the freezer. They are ready to go in a boiling pot when I want them.
