I absolutely love growing or buying in season produce that I can preserve and use all year long. There’s nothing quite like the flavor of fresh, in season strawberries which is why I freeze them in the spring for making smoothies the rest of the year. The kids and I LOVE to go pick fresh strawberries every spring and luckily, berries are one of the easiest things to freeze, so I’m excited to share with you how to do that today.

Step 1: Choose ripe, blemish free berries.
Step 2: Rinse berries and slice green tops off.
Step 3: Pat dry with towel.
Step 4: Lay berries on cooking sheet in single layer and freeze for one hour. (this is called flash freezing)
Step 5: After one hour has passed, remove berries from freezer and place in a labeled freezer bag. Close bag removing as much air as possible.
