Buster began cooking as a wee pup by watching his mother fix the kibble. He was hooked. He loves preparing -- and writing about -- food.

Luscious strawberries

Freezing Strawberries Is So Easy

This is a foolproof and incredibly easy way to preserve all that incredible strawberry goodness.

I love frozen strawberries for adding to milkshakes, to add to protein shakes, for making daiquiri's and any other way you can think of!

How To Freeze Strawberries

You can use this technique for a pint basket of strawberries, or for a truckload. The only restriction is the size of your freezer.

Using a paring knife, remove the stem. Place them on a baking sheet lined with foil. Once the baking sheet is full, then place into the freezer. If you have a small freezer, then place them in a baking dish, in a single layer, and put that into the freezer.

After about 8 hours -- once the strawberries are frozen -- then place them into a freezer bag. Label the bag with the date, then return to the freezer.

That's all there is to it. I usually stem my berries and place them on baking sheets just before I go to bed, then when I wake up the next morning they're frozen and ready to go into freezer bags.

They'll keep for up to six months, and they taste just like strawberries fresh from the field.
