Freezing fruits and vegetables is an easy to way to extend their life and avoid food waste when you can't get through a bunch of produce. But there are some fruits and veggies you should never freeze. Celery, for example, can turn limp and take on an obnoxious odor. Cucumbers also change from crunchy and fresh to limp and stale when frozen; consider pickling them instead. And potatoes are a no-go, too: When you reheat frozen potatoes, the water separates from the natural starches and makes your au gratin very watery.
