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!
