Perfectly Frozen Fruit

Have you ever wondered why the frozen fruit you buy at the store in the bags doesn’t stick together in one big frozen ball? To prevent the pieces from freezing to each other, the pieces are frozen on some sort of flat tray that allows them to freeze individually. This can be easily done at your house, too, when you have extra strawberries, melon pieces, etc. that you want to freeze for a smoothie or other dish.

If you have a larger piece of fruit, like melon, make sure to cut it up in pieces. Place pieces on a cookie sheet or plate and stick it in the freezer for one hour. Then place pieces in a plastic bag to continue to freeze. Voila!
