Keeping pre cut shop bought veggies

I’m hoping you wonderful people on this board can help me.

I’m worried about my fresh veggies on jan.

I have food allergies , medical problems. Lots of them. I have bad hands so I use pre cut veg from the shops.

I can only have carrot and swede mix which I can’t get frozen where I am. So I have the pre cut cube packs from the fridge section.

Now. That’s normally okay. But with brexit I cannot guarantee I can get them.

How can I keep these veggies fresh for as long as I can ?

Can you not cook and mash them and then freeze? I would assume that these are UK produce though so can't see why Brexit would affect

My body reacts to new things badly. So I’m reluctant to even consider mashing and freezing them ( yup my body and reactions are that bad. ) I’m now hoping what u say is true and I will still be able to get them.

Brexit might affect as if it's one of a now reduced list of available items, everyone will be buying them.

Could you either dehydrate or blanch and then freeze? I don't dehydrate but I blanch and freeze when I find heavily reduced veg.

I hope you find a solution, perhaps it'll all be okay but I can completely understand wanting a plan b for peace of mind.

Could you try freezing a pack now, cooking half from frozen, the other half once defrosted and see if either are acceptable?

I would try blanching them and freezing them I think. Alternatively try keeping them stored in an air tight container of water in the fridge. I do that with carrots that I've peeled and sliced, and they do keep for longer.

Thanks for your answers. Going to put them in water
