My Grandmother, called it “putting up”. So today I washed and put up a BUNCH of strawberries. I worked all day with these delicious, sweet smelling berries. I love to think of how awesome they will be next winter!
At our house, this time of the year, we eat fresh strawberries every day. We eat them rinsed just out of the container, in pies, puddings, and jellys. I always buy enough to put up for later. Being my favorite fruit, I love knowing there are many bags in the freezer to bring a bit of sunshine during the cold winter days.
Here’s my four simple steps to freezing strawberries.
HOW TO FREEZE WHOLE STRAWBERRIES
1. Wash the strawberries and pat dry.
2. Hull the berries removing the caps and any bad spots.
3.Place separately on a baking sheet and freeze until solid.
4.Transfer to bags or airtight containers (I use my food saver to suck all the air out of the bags and seal them), and store in the freezer.
It’s that simple.
