On said day, my son didn't have school or work, so I got him to go pick up the berries - YAY! When the berries got home I was amazed . . . they were beautiful and big:)
My girls froze 45 quart bags of them. We cut them and freeze with sugar. We use these in our frozen fruit mix, on waffles with whipped cream, etc.
At late o'clock at night we still had more berries to do, so I let the girls freeze them whole . . . something we've never done. Tonight we're going to try to make strawberry butter from them after they thaw. We've only made it with fresh berries before, but we're hoping it will work with these berries.
This is our first thing to go in the freezer for this season. It's fairly empty now but I'm sure by late August it will be stuffed!! I love getting all my fruit and berries frozen for the year.
