Packing Fruit for Freezing

There are several ways to pack fruit for freezing. * Dry Pack - Fruit is put into a sealed container. * Syrup Pack - Fruit is covered with a syrup mixture. Best used for sauces or desserts. * Sugar Pack - Sugar is sprinkled over fruit and mixed gently until juice is drawn out and sugar dissolves. Works well with juicy fruits. Best for cooking purposes like pies or crisps. * Unsweetened Pack - Fruit is covered with water containing ascorbic acid. Source: Homestead Harvest
