Kathy Miller asks
"Just wondering what other Cheapskates think of cooking with frozen vegetables instead of fresh vegetables, is it a healthy option? Frozen vegetables are much cheaper than fresh but do they have as many vitamins?"

Hi! I worked with a lady whose family farmed vegetables and sold them to a large frozen food company. She told me that the vegetables were flash frozen on the day of picking to preserve nutrients and freshness. Most "fresh" vegetables have been in cold storage for many months before being shipped to stores where we can buy fruit and veg out of season.

There is nothing better than fresh vegetables from your own garden. However, there always seems to be a “hungry” time in my garden when one season has come to an end before the next season is ready for harvest. This is where I use store purchased frozen vegetables. There is no waste, I have read somewhere that the nutrient level is equal to “fresh” store purchased vegetables and they are generally cheaper. Unless locally grown, fresh in supermarkets is debatable- eg lemons from California sold “fresh” on Australian supermarket shelves.
