We’ve been buying strawberries at Costco. Yum! 🙂 But there are are just to many for us to eat before all 4lbs goes bad. So I have a bowl, just a small mixing bowl, and I fill that up. Those are the fresh ones that we eat during the week. The rest get washed, quartered, but on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and frozen. That way the are perfect for smoothies and we don’t waste 3.5lbs of strawberries! Once frozen, I divide then up into quart freezer bags and they are ready for use.
But the best thing about freezing them this way is that you don’t get a huge frozen strawberry chunk that you can’t do anything with! Trust me, this is the way to do it!
