With the onset of spring, all kinds of green delicious vegetables appear on the market, which we have been waiting for all winter and which our body needs very much.

The warmer the weather, the more fresh produce we can find in the markets. It is desirable to use them when they are fresh and for the rest of the year we can preserve almost all types of vegetables.

There are those whose canning is not very popular, but in fact there is nothing complicated and even different from canning of other vegetables.

Sorrel, dock and spinach are very healthy foods. You can successfully preserve them for the winter without worrying, that these delicious vegetables will lose their taste or qualities.

One of the ways to preserve dock, spinach and sorrel is in the freezer - wash the vegetables well, dry them and then cut them, arrange them in plastic bags or containers and store them in the freezer.

You can use it when you decide - it sounds rather strange to eat dock at sub-zero temperatures, which is characteristic for eating sauerkraut, for example.
