Red fruit faced kids with berry smears on their shirts – is that not a vision of summer? momstown moms and kids have been delighting in strawberry picking this summer and talking about great ideas to do with the baskets and baskets of berries.
Eat them or Freeze them? Eat them straight up or doll them up into a something special? Oh the decisions!
How to Freeze Strawberries-
Gently wash all the berries and then hull out the stem (we love this huller gadget!).
Little helpers can then line the berries up in one layer evenly on a cookie sheet. (If they aren’t on a flat sheet, the berries will clump and freeze together).
Place them as is in the freezer overnight.
In the morning you will have perfectly frozen, individual berries that you can store in a zippered bag or container to pop into smoothies or recipes well past strawberry season.
We love to add thawed berries to the top of frozen yogurt or vanilla ice cream!
