Ask Chef Mary-Canned or Frozen Vegetables?

Dear Mary,

I live in a state where it is sometimes difficult to get fresh produce in the winter. Should I buy canned or frozen?


Sam, I am getting ready to post my Organic farming Cooking with Mary webisode on Itunes that does discuss this question. I will give you a brief idea but I still encourage you to look it up on itunes.

You should buy your produce frozen whenever you don’t have the option to buy it fresh. It retains more of the vitamins and minerals than it’s canned counterpart. Although freezing does reduce the amount of vitamins and minerals in the produce, you will still get more than you would canned.

Happy Cooking!

Chef Mary
