Freezing Strawberries

Do you ever freeze strawberries?  I do this often in the summer, when the strawberries are so ripe that you can smell them in the produce section even before you see them!

I stock up, and freeze some for smoothies, milkshakes, and strawberry topping.  It’s really easy and convenient, and in the winter I can pull them out of the freeze for a little taste of summer.

All you need to do is wash them, pat them dry, cut off any bad parts and hull them.  Then place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment and freeze them for a few hours.

Then place them in a plastic freezer bag (or vacuum seal them – I do this if they’re not going to be used for a few months) and place in the freezer.  Super easy!
