Freezing Strawberries

How do I go about freezing strawberries?

Freezer Bags

When I freeze strawberries, I just pick, wash, remove stems and slice them. I fill zip lock freezer bags with enough for a meal, express as much air from the bag as possible and pop them into the freezer. If you like them sweetened, add sugar when you thaw them.

Zip-loc Bags

I do this all the time. Rinse, remove stems, freeze in single layer on a cookie sheet or sheet pan. Once frozen, pour into zip-loc bag. You can then remove as many as you need each time. (07/04/2006)

Foil Lined Cookie Sheet

I would recommend cleaning off the stem and freezing them whole. I usually put them on a foil lined cookie sheet and freeze them individally. Then store in a freezer Ziplock bag. This way they don't freeze in a big glob. Use them frozen. Also i like to freeze Blueberrys on a cookie sheet to. Then they are loose when you store them in your ziplock freezer bags. Strawberries tend to get mushy but sure are good in the dead of winter. Good luck (07/11/2006)

Cookie Sheet

I also freeze strawberries all the time. After I clean them, I slice them and lay them out on a cookie sheet sprayed with a little non-stick spray so that they freeze individually. Once they are frozen hard I put them all together in a gallon ziploc. Because they are flash frozen individually they don't stick together and I can just pull out a handful or however many as I need at a time. (07/12/2006)
