A helping hand for home freezing.
Ideal for maintaining a crisp texture and full flavour in a variety of fruit vegetables prior to home freezing, this blanching basket from KitchenCraft is ideal for the home cook wanting to save time and money on fresh, healthy ingredients. The deep basket allows a large quantity of produce to be blanched at once.
To use, simply fill the basket with your prepped fruit or veg, and lower into boiling water. Leave the produce to cook for a couple of minutes, or until the vegetables are just starting to soften. Then, remove the basket from the boiling water, and plunge into a pre-prepared container of ice water. This process ensures that vegetables maintain their colour, texture and most importantly - their flavour - when frozen.
This blanching basket is dishwasher safe.
Measures: 16cm high x 14cm deep.
