How to Freeze Strawberries

-Gently wash and then pat strawberries dry.

-Take the tops off.

-If you have room in your freezer, lay the strawberries in a single layer on a cookie sheet.

-Put them in the freezer for 24 hours then fill and seal freezer bags with strawberries, making sure to take as much of the air out of the bag as you can.

-You can also skip putting them on a cookie sheet and just put them in plastic bags and freeze them that way.

-Frozen strawberries will keep for a year; they are delicious in smoothies, pies and as ice cream topping.

-If you don’t freeze them on a cookie sheet, they will stick together in the bag. To break them apart, run them briefly under hot water so that you can break them apart.
