How To Freeze Strawberries
An easy, step by step guide for freezing strawberries that works well for blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and more.REVIEW PRINT
- 1 Large Strainer
- 1 Cookie Sheet
- Buy the most delicious, ripe strawberries you can find from your local farmers.
- Gently rinse all of the berries in a large strainer. (You may need to do this in rounds.)
- Carefully remove the stems from each precious little berry. This is time consuming but all in all it only took me about 10 minutes for 8 quarts. It’s worth it, I promise.
- Working in batches, lay the berries out on a cookie baking sheet in a single layer. Pat the berries dry with paper towel and freeze for 1 hour until firm. This step helps prevent the berries from sticking together in one large clumb when you place them in a plastic bag.
- Place the partially frozen berries in a resealable plastic bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
