i hardly ever make fresh food due to no time but really want to start also think it will work out alot cheaper in the long run
few questions though
things like homemade soup do i just make this let it cool down then put in tubs and into the freezer (stupid question but what about onions as i no they tend to go off if left out for two long will putting them through it be all right? how do you then defrost/heat it up again)

any other ideas of food i can cook larger portions off and then freeze can you also let me no if i should defrost then cook them or can just cook them
thanks all in advance

You can freeze loads of stuff. soup is fine, onions wont cause you an issue.

Just make sure you defrost it overnight in the fridge and then heat up to over 70 ish for a few minutes.

With meat you can

cook it from raw, freeze it, defrost it and reheat it.

Or freeze raw, defrost, cook and refreeze. Just never refreeze in same state- if that makes sense.

We freeze almost anything.
