Being the most cultivated berry with 600 different varieties grown in America, strawberry season is often anticipated by many. From April to July, eager berry pickers flock to the fields for the best selection of strawberries they can get their hands on. From straight out of the basket to being baked into desserts, they can be eaten in several delicious ways. Full of Antioxidants and Vitamin C, here’s how you can choose, store, freeze, cut and eat your freshly picked strawberries to get the most out of this season.

 

How to Choose

When it comes to picking the perfect batch of berries, make sure to watch out for the following characteristics.

What to Look For

  • Brightly coloured
  • Dry
  • Firm
  • Plump
  • Bright green caps

What to Avoid

  • Soft
  • Dull or darkened coloured
  • Shriveled
  • Partly white

 

Storing

To start things off, keep in mind that you should never wash or cut your fresh strawberries until you are ready to use them. To store your them in the meantime, the best way is to spread them out into a single layer across a sheet of paper towel, but this is not always the easiest. Another perfectly fine method would be to store them in a well-sealed container for up to four days.

 

Freezing

When it comes time to bring your baskets full of berries home, sometimes it can be impossible to find a reason to use them all right away. One of the best ways to deal with this, and to ensure you have strawberries for future recipes, is to store some in your freezer.

To do so, remove the green caps from each berry and spread them out into a single layer on a baking sheet and lay them flat in your freezer. While this may seem to take up a lot of space for a very small amount of berries, they can easily be transferred into a re-sealable bag as soon as they are frozen solid.
