The Cookie Staples Every Baker Should Have in their Freezer

Cookie Staples Every Baker Should Have in their Freezer

Grated Fresh Ginger: Freeze freshly grated ginger in an ice cube tray. Once solid, you can pop the cubes into a resealable bag and have them on hand for up to 3 months.

Nuts: Fatty nuts have a notoriously short shelf life. Extend that time by toasting, cooling, and placing your nuts in a resealable bag. They’ll keep for up to 2 months. Untoasted nuts can keep for up to 6 months.

Almond Meal: Like its whole counterpart, almond meal can go rancid quickly. Store your almond meal in a resealable bag in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Cranberries: Many holiday cookie recipes call for cranberries, and if you can’t get ahold of the fresh stuff, frozen will always work in a pinch. Just be sure to thaw and pat dry before using in your recipe. Frozen cranberries will keep for up to 12 months. 

Citrus Zest: Juicing some lemons or oranges but have no immediate use for the zest? Zest the citrus, and allow to have a quick freeze on a flat surface covered with parchment paper. Once frozen, place in a resealable bag, and freeze for up to 6 months. ∞
