Strawberries are my favorite fruit! And apparently I am not the only one who feels that way. Ninety four percent of US households consume strawberries.
When I bring strawberries home from the grocery store or the Farmers Market, I do not wash them until I am ready to consume them. Strawberries don't last very long when stored in the refrigerator, so I try to consume fresh strawberries within 2 to 3 days of bringing them home. If I am unable to eat all of the strawberries I purchased, I will freeze them.
To freeze the strawberries, I wash, hull, and dry them, then I arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet and place it in the freezer. After they are frozen, I place them in a resealable plastic freezer bag. By doing this, I always have strawberries on hand when I want to make my Grilled Strawberry Shortcake recipe.
On Friday I will post a recipe for:
Strawberry Cream Cheese Muffins
