Ingredients

  • 1 lb strawberries

Instructions

Wash

  • Wash all of your strawberries under cold water to remove any dirt or bacteria that might be on them.
    Pat them dry and then allow them to air dry on a paper towel or dishtowel.

Trim

  • Hull the strawberries by cutting off the tops where the green leafy stem is.
    There are other ways to do this as well by using a hulling tool or cutting around the stem from the top side. It can also be as easy as giving the stem and leaves a little pull and twist and it will pop right off.

Cut

  • If you choose to freeze your strawberries sliced or cut up into smaller pieces, it is best to do that now before you freeze them

Flash freeze

  • Lay out your whole or sliced strawberries on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Space them apart so that they do not freeze together.
    Freeze overnight or until they are frozen solid.

Storage

  • Once they are frozen solid place them into a freezer-safe bag or container. Remove as much air as possible and place them back into the freezer. They will last 12-18 months frozen.
