    I'm seen a few posts on storing strawberries in the fridge, but i was wondering what the best way is to freeze them...should i freeze them whole, or make them into a puree and freeze that? I'm confused! icon_lol.gif

    It depends on what you want to use them for once they are thawed. Freezing strawberries can make them quite limp and juicey when thawed, like a blueberry. I've heard that you can roll them in strawberry jello and flash freeze (freezing in a single layer on a tray so they come apart and can be stored in a bag without becoming one massive lump) to keep them firm but I havn't tried that myself.

    A puree would be good for sauces, syrups or smoothies, and frozen whole would be good for muffins, breads, or crepe filling.

    I freeze mine sliced or whole, in a single layer on a cookie sheet then when totally frozen put them into a bag. The are juicy and limp but I defrosted them and added some sugar for pancake topping.

    You can even freeze them in light syrup, made from sugar and water. I can't remember to proportions right now.

    I can't remember if it was Bobby Flay or Alton Brown, but one of them said equal parts water and sugar for a simple syrup.

    Thanks guys! You've been so helpful. I flash froze some and I know they are going to be very useful when I can't get them fresh...putting them on pancakes sounds especially yummy!
