|Local Fresh Strawberries|
This morning quarts of strawberries from Meadowbrook Farm in East Longmeadow, MA found their way to my kitchen. After cutting off the tops, the strawberries were double rinsed in cold water & drained. Then, 2 and 1/2 cups of this fruit were placed in Ziploc Freezer Bags. Some of the larger strawberries were sliced first. I add about 1 Tablespoon of sugar to each bag before closing. It works well to move the sugar crystals around in the bag, so it dissolves. Label & date each bag.
In the winter months a defrosted bag of this yummy fruit is such a treat to top a Belgian Waffle, Yummy Oatmeal Pancakes or ice cream.
