  • Yes you can. I think generally it's for three to six months or until the get frost bite. One of the two.

  • Yes you can. My parents always bought lunch meat on sale and then would freeze it until they needed it. Cut up fruit can be frozen. i wouldn't freeze a melon in a rind or oranges in their peels, but cut it up first/process it and put it in heavy freezer zip locks.

  • I would only vac pack lunch meat and I wouldnt eat it after a couple of months. Fruit... probably depends on the fruit and what its purpose will be once thawed. Berries are fine. Melons will probably be a little mushy. You can look up individual fruits.

  • Most fruits freeze really well (kiwis are a definite fruit to not freeze)

  • Yuckie- I, personally, would not do lunch meat. Fruit is a YES MAM!

    If we do not eat our entire bundle of bananas- I'll de-peel them and freeze them for smoothies! I take 1/2 frozen banana, 1/2 cup of frozen strawberries, 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries, 1/4 cup of non-fat vanilla yogart, 1/4 cup of orange juice and a few ice cubes- BLEND!!! Delish!

    I make my own baby food as well, I will puree peach, blueberries, pears, apples, mangos and then freeze them into ice cubes :)
