How To Freeze Strawberries | How To Freeze Fruits and Veggies! These tips are great for when making smoothies, nice cream or just for preserving to snack.
We’re so excited to show you how to freeze strawberries ( and how to freeze fruit and vegetables too!) so you can enjoy even when the peak season is over! When freezing fruit or even vegetables we find it’s best wash them, dry them, place on a tray or cookie sheet and freeze in a single layer. Once frozen you can place them into a bag and enjoy for months to come! By freezing in a single layer prior to placing in a bag they won’t stick together or get squished. When you freeze your own strawberries you can enjoy for up to 6-8 months. I also use my FoodSaver so I can ensure that they will last longer.
First wash and hull your strawberries, then follow our picture tutorial:
When freezing, place your strawberries upside down. By placing them upside down you allow all the water to drain, as you can see in the pictures below. I suggest using parchment paper or a Silpat Non-Stick Baking Mat on a cookie sheet when freezing. If not the strawberries may stick to the cookie sheet. Also if you’re freezing, see what else you can freeze. We had purchase two beautiful organic pineapples and decided to freeze one with the strawberries. Freezing your fruit is perfect for smoothies, recipes, juices, or even when you just want to snack on something cold instead of ice cream 😉 Freezing is a great way to preserve the items you’re not using, never let food go to waste this way too!
