Freezing Strawberries

Freezing strawberries is a great way to lock in their great taste and nutrients for weeks or even months after they've been picked. When freezing strawberries, I first wash them and remove the stem. Then I spread them on a cookie sheet and stick them in the freezer for a few hours. Freezing them this way reduces the amount that they will stick together later.

After the strawberries have been in the freezer for a little while they can be put in plastic bags or containers then placed back into the freezer until they are used.

After picking, 50+ pounds of strawberries I had a lot to freeze. But it's ok because frozen strawberries are marvelous in smoothies. Speaking of smoothies, check out these babies:

Just frozen strawberries, yogurt and sugar. Mmmmm.... delicious.
