It's Strawberry season at the farmstands. In the midwest, the cold spring made it late, but it's here now in all it's berry-tart glory!
Check out our recent loot:
Strawberries don't last long, so if you can't get to your recipes within a day or two, process the berries, pop them in plastic bags and freeze them. I like measuring them in 4 Cup Bags and 8 cup bags, which aligns usually with jam and pie recipes. Freezing buys you months to use them. I sometimes mix them in other late summer fruit jams, and I have to wait for those to be ready. So freezing strawberries until my peaches and nectarines come in is the best way to keep your farm fresh vibe in your kitchen.
