How to freeze strawberries
If you have fresh strawberries you’d like to freeze, follow these steps to ensure the best quality is maintained.
- Wash strawberries and gently dry them.
- Hull the strawberries and remove any that are bruised.
- Place the strawberries on a baking paper lined tray so they aren’t touching each other and place in the freezer. Freeze until they are solid.
- Once frozen, transfer the strawberries into snap lock bags or airtight containers and freeze for up to six months.
After six months, strawberries can start to get freezer burn, particularly if sugar hasn’t been added. To preserve the colour of the strawberries and prevent freezer burn, add a light sprinkling of sugar before they are frozen.
