Freezing Strawberries

I love to freeze the abundance of strawberries, either from my own strawberry patch or from the local farmers market.  That way I can enjoy strawberries in my smoothies, salad dressing and use them for making jam throughout the rest of the year.

I learned the hard way one year how not to freeze strawberries and ended up with a giant brick of strawberries that I had to chisel apart every time we wanted to use them. You can avoid that mistake by following these simple instructions.
