Fresh-frozen? Of course!

Perhaps you do not immediately think of fresh-frozen vegetables, fruit or herbs, but they are a great choice. Fresh-frozen vegetables, herbs and fruit have a major advantage: they retain most of their nutritional value because they are frozen very quickly after harvesting. That makes their colour, texture and taste richer than those of fresh vegetables, and they also contain more vitamins.
