Are you looking for how to freeze strawberries? You’re in the right spot. Freeze them the right way and you can have fresh strawberries all year long.
Strawberry season is here in North Carolina! We’ve been to the farm once already and I’m sure we’ll go back a few more times. We live near the strawberry patch and we watch and wait all year for the little trailer to arrive and let us know it’s time to start picking.
We are meeting up with some some friends to pick more so I decided I would just freeze the ones I already have. I don’t want them to go bad. She didn’t know how to freeze strawberries so I thought I would just write it up for her!
You’ll want to save some of these recipes to use up all the strawberries you have!

How to freeze strawberries
1. The first thing I do is wash the berries. I get any dirt and bugs off them.
2. I lay them out on a towel and let them dry completely.
3. Cut or pull the stems off. I just cut them because I can do it a little faster. This is the this cutting board I’m using. I love it and use it all the time. If there are any bruised spots, cut them out. If you wouldn’t eat them, then don’t freeze them.
4. Lay them on a cookie sheet.
5. Put in the freezer for a few hours. I usually just freeze them over night. I’ll take them out the next morning while I’m cooking breakfast. They will probably stick to the tray so just bang it on the counter a few times to loosen them up.
6. Store in an airtight container. I just use gallon sized freezer baggies.
This is a great way to use all those delicious strawberries you’re going to pick this year.
