Imagine how good (and cheap!) blueberry muffins will be in a few months, if you take the time to freeze the loads of fresh blueberries on sale now. Or think how easy dinner could be on busy weeknights this fall if you make a pot of summer vegetable soup or a batch of marinara and store it in the freezer. Take a few moments to pickle your favorite vegetables, turn fleeting fruits into jam, or whir fresh herbs into freezer-friendly pestos and in the doldrums of winter, you’ll be surrounded by the fabulous flavors of summer.
