At the weekend we had a homemade crumble from the freezer for dessert .....
... as you can see from this photo we have quite a stack of them in the small freezer, on this shelf and the one below it. The tin foil dishes are simply filled with chopped homegrown apples and blackberries right up to the top and then lidded and labelled. When we want a crumble I take off the top and add a layer of crumble, which I store separately in the tubs on top. Doing it this way means you get lots of fruit but there is still just enough room on the top of the foil tray once the little edges are folded up when you remove the lid.
And if you want a pie or cobbler you can simply add a pastry or scone topping to it, or of course you can just tip out the fruit and use it in something completely different. It's nice not to limit your options.
It was while doing this and taking the photograph that I realised we don't eat crumble that often and yet here they all were taking up the most useful shelf of the small kitchen freezer, so I set to and inventoried the contents of this freezer ... and then rearranged the contents of both freezers to be more user friendly. Of course this meant updating my whole inventory which thanks to it being saved on the computer was not too time consuming to do.
Now the plan is to regularly move into the smaller freezer all the things that will be used up first and start to get into the habit of using the chest freezer for long term storage, which is the plan for it when it's moved into the workshop.
