Why is summer freezer time? Simple vegetables and fruits ripen and are ready for processing. Freezing is the normal way today to preserve foods.

My wife picks and processes her strawberries and raspberries preparing them for winter jam making. We get fresh jam year round this way. The berries can also be thawed and served just as they are (maybe a little sweetener and of course, whipped cream or Cool Whip):).

NOTE: Our freezer is not empty like the one above, in fact we have 3 freezers!

  • 1 – 15 cubic chest freezer
  • 1 – freezer in our family refridgerator
  • 1 – 5.0 cubic chest freezer

The reason we had to get a 5.0 cubic foot chest freezer is because of my wife’s habit of making jam for Christmas gifts. We use it mostly for the processed berries. We purchased this freezer in 2020. It is a

Kismile 5.0 Cubic Feet Chest Freezer with Removable Basket Free Standing Top Open Door Compact Freezer.

[Sorry, didn’t mean to shout, but we really like it!]

That’s how full it is now. We really enjoy getting ready in Summer for our Winter gift giving (and some ‘fresh’ berry concoctions for us as well). Got to be industrious like the ants or we go hungry for the best of the Summer goodies!


If you don’t need a great big freezer, one of these might fit the bill. They don’t take much space (27.3″ wide x 21,77″ deep x 32.91″ high). It sure holds a lot of good stuff! Price isn’t too bad either (click link for price and more information).
