Advice of the Day: Ice

No ice for drinks? Use frozen vegetables.

The most common vegetable to be frozen is the humble pea. Peas make up around 22% of all frozen vegetables produced in the UK and USA. Other popular frozen vegetables include sweetcorn, carrots, green beans, spinach, and diced onions.

It is difficult to accurately estimate the number of frozen peas produced each year in the UK and USA, as this information is not typically made publicly available. However, in 2018 it was estimated that the UK and USA produced a combined total of over 6.5 million tonnes of frozen vegetables.

Frozen vegetables typically last up to six months in an ideal storage environment. However, the quality of the vegetables may start to decline after this point, so it is best to eat them within this time frame. It is also important to ensure that the vegetables are stored in an airtight container and that the temperature is kept below 0°C (32°F).

On average, the water content of vegetables ranges from 80–95%, depending on the type of vegetable. For example, celery is 95% water, while potatoes are 80% water.
what about peas and carrots? Peas typically have a water content of around 80%, while carrots contain around 87% water.

This idea makes sense!
