How to Preserve Ripe Strawberries
The joke in this Midwest state is that people stock up on milk and bread as soon as the forecast calls for bad weather. There’s something about a Missouri snow storm in the forecast that makes me worry about not having enough fresh strawberries.
When I found a great supply at my local Aldi’s store, I stocked up. These are smaller, longer strawberries but with great flavor. The challenge is not to let them spoil and that’s quite easy: freeze them.
After a good wash and gently drying with a kitchen towel, I cut the strawberries into smaller sliced pieces and placed them on a tray to freeze. Aldi’s produce is from non-pesticide suppliers so the produce is not treated with wax and other preservatives found in other stores.
I like freezing the individual pieces so that I can easily choose the size of helping I want while still preserving the rest of the strawberry supply.
It’s that easy. Whether its blueberries, blackberries or strawberries, this is a fast and easy way to preserve them so you can enjoy them later.
Reminds me of the Strawberry Shortcake dolls that used to be the rage!
