A clean dishtowel
Non-stick parchment paper
Large ziploc bags
4pintsfreshly picked strawberries
Rinse the freshly picked strawberries under clean running water to remove any insects or dirt.
Dry the strawberries by spreading them out on a clean, dry dishtowel. Gently pat the strawberries dry.
Hull the strawberries by removing the tops of the strawberries, being careful not to waste to much of the fruit. If slicing the strawberries do so now.
Line a sheet pan or cookie sheet with non-stick parchment paper. Spread the prepared strawberries on the sheet pan in one layer, making sure none of the berries touch. If freezing large batches you may need multiple sheet pans or trays.
Place the strawberry filled pans directly in the freezer. Let the strawberries freeze solid for about 2-3 hours.
Remove the tray from the freezer and loosen the frozen strawberries. Store the frozen berries in a Ziploc bag or other freezer-proof container.
