Butternut Squash

You’ll never have to cut, peel, and seed another squash again.

Artichokes

With the same tender sweetness of canned hearts but without the vinegar (these aren’t pickled), they’re an instant upgrade for pizzas, pastas, and homemade sauces. You can also defrost ’em and use as a salad topper.

Petite Peas

Petite peas (also known as French peas or petits pois) are way sweeter than English ones. They’re amazing on toast topped with ricotta and fresh herbs.

Cherries

These tend to be pricier than most frozen berries, but the deep, jammy sweetness will feel like such a treat when cherry season is a distant memory.

Mango

Aside from defrosting and eating frozen chunks of mango as is, you can turn them into “soft serve” by blending with a splash of something creamy like almond or coconut milk.

Peaches

Say goodbye to unripe, mushy, and bland peaches. Frozen peaches can be defrosted and used in pies, cobblers, or your next fruit salad.

Cauliflower Rice

Use these little grains of cauliflower as you would rice: in stir-fries, underneath sauces, and alongside meaty mains.

Blueberries

There’s no stack of pancakes, smoothie, or bowl of oatmeal that frozen blueberries can’t make better.
