Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
Actually, I've heard several nutritionists and popular cooks discuss frozen fruit and vegetables. Typically the produce in those bags or boxes was picked ripe and frozen very close to the field; this in contrast to fruit or vege picked early enough that it will ripen while travelling to wherever it will be stored. It never has the full flavor of vine-ripened when it is treated that way. If you're cooking with fruit or vegetables and choose to use frozen, you'll typically get good quality.

Process foods, there are very few I use. Pasta sauce (and I'm picky about the one I use) is about it, an acceptable shortcut.
