Freezing fresh strawberries is an excellent way to preserve them for extended use and allows you to buy them at peak freshness, then use them throughout the year. Here our are tips and tricks to washing, slicing, and freezing strawberries!
**For using frozen strawberries in baking:
Protip: For every 1 cup of frozen strawberries, toss with 1 tablespoon cornstarch or flour. This will help thicken the juices released by the strawberries!
Also, don’t defrost the strawberries prior to adding them to your dough or batter. Add frozen strawberries directly into the batter and into the oven! If you let them defrost first, liquid they shed can throw off the dry to wet ratios in the recipe.
