How to Freeze Fresh Strawberries

  • Wash: The day before you plan to make this recipe, wash and cut one pound of fresh strawberries.  You’ll want the strawberries to be bite-size.
  • Freeze: Place them on parchment paper and freeze.
  • Store: Once they are semi-frozen you can put them in a plastic bag to use when you’re ready to make the strawberry angel food cake.
