  • 1 pound fresh strawberries


  • Wash the strawberries with cold water and drain using a colander.
  • Transfer strawberries to a kitchen towel and spread out on the towel. Allow 15-20 minutes for them to air dry.
  • Slice off the green tops and then slice the strawberries in half.
  • Spread the strawberries in a single layer on a freezer safe rimmed baking tray.
  • Freeze for 2-4 hours, being careful not to leave longer than 4 hours since they will get freezer burn.
  • Transfer the frozen strawberries to freezer bags or freezer safe containers and seal. Return to the freezer and store for up to one year.


Tip: Cut the strawberries into uniform pieces for easier defrosting.
