If you find yourself with a strawberry overload, then here is a simple tip for you on HOW TO FREEZE STRAWBERRIES.
I love strawberries and right now it is strawberry season. My daughter is in the FFA and every year she sells strawberries. I usually end up buying a whole flat of strawberries not only to support the FFA but to freeze them and enjoy them all year long.
There is nothing like the fresh taste of strawberries, especially early in the season. The problem is–they don’t last very long. I try to preserve them so I can enjoy them throughout the year.
They are great to use in smoothies, for making jam, and also strawberry cake.
Freezing strawberries is easy, and by doing this in the spring, you can enjoy them all year long.
How to Freeze Strawberries
Step one: Rinse strawberries and place on a paper towel to drain. Blot them dry or allow to air dry.
Step two: Cut off the tops of the strawberries.
Step three: Slice berries or leave whole and place on a lined baking sheet. Make sure your berries are not touching. I use freezer paper to line my pan.
Step four: Place pan in freezer for at least an hour or longer until frozen.
Step five: Take out of freezer and pour into a zip top bag, label, and place back into the freezer.
These will keep in the freezer for at least 6 months and longer in the deep freeze, if they are not eaten before then.
