Does it matter how long vegetables are blanched?
Blanching time is crucial and varies with the vegetables and size. Under-blanching stimulates the activity of enzymes and is worse than no blanching. Overblanching causes loss of color, flavor, vitamins and minerals. Source: Original FAQ posted at http://22.214.171.124/faq/FAQ_home.php
