Locally Grown Strawberries …

10 - StrawberriesWe happen to be fortunate enough to live right beside a strawberry farm and our neighbours grow the best strawberries I’ve ever tasted!  Nothing beats the taste of a fresh, ripe and juicy strawberry just plucked from the plant.  The supermarket variety just doesn’t compare so if you’ve never tasted a real strawberry head out to your nearest strawberry farm or local farmer’s market before strawberry season is done.  I picked up two flats of strawberries and froze them for winter eating.  What I do is remove the green stem and slice or dice the strawberries into small pieces and place them into small and medium size freezer bags and stack them in the freezer.  I don’t fill the bags very full though, just a thin layer so that its easy to break the chunks of berries apart when you want just a small amount to make smoothies or a larger amount for desserts such as a strawberry cheesecake.
