How to Freeze Strawberries

With Strawberry season in full swing in some areas, it’s a great time to freeze spring’s crimson berries to enjoy through the rest of the year. But if you don’t freeze the berries quickly enough, they turn into a weeping pile of mush when you defrost them. This week over at PBS I post some tips on freezing strawberries properly (or any food for that matter) along with a recipe for a strawberry maple smoothie.

     Hello Marc,

     Do we need to wash the strawberries BEFORE we freeze them ? Thanks

      Yes absolutely, washing them after freezing will be much harder.

    To freeze strawberries do you have to use strawberries?  And do you have to put them in the freezer?  thanks

    hi marc ! can we use this technique for another fruits like mango, pineapple, etc ??

    • http://norecipes.com Marc Matsumoto

      Pineapple should work, mango won’t freeze well if it’s very ripe as it doesn’t have much structure.

Welcome!
