Strawberries Galore!

Our strawberry patch is a success. Here's two days worth of berries ready for freezing ~ minus the ones I couldn't keep from eating :)

The frozen berries bagged up in a gallon sized Ziploc freezer bag and ready to go back into the freezer. I think I'd have to pay around $6-$8 for a bag of frozen strawberries this size at the store.


We've mostly been eating the berries fresh, but we're having trouble keeping up, so now we're freezing some. Here's how we freeze our strawberries. There are plans for strawberry jam as well.
We'd love more ideas for using our abundance of fresh strawberries! Leave a comment telling us what you'd do if you had a quart of strawberries a day.

Smoothies, homemade strawberry ice cream, strawberry jam. Do you think you could can strawberry pie filling? It would probably be in the Ball Blue Book if you could.

Here it is! I found it on recipezaar.com and it's called Berry Smash Muffins. I make mine in a mini muffin tin and check it around 10-12 minutes. Let me know if you like it!


Ingredients

* 1 2/3 cups fresh strawberries
* 2/3 cup sugar
* 1/3 cup vegetable oil
* 2 eggs
* 1 1/2 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

1. Heat oven to 425 F.
2. Put a paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups, or grease just the bottoms of 12 muffin cups.
3.Slightly smash strawberries in large bowl, using fork.
4.Stir in sugar, oil and eggs until mixed.
5. Stir in other ingredients just until moistened.
6. Spoon batter into muffin cups.
7.Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until light golden brown or toothpick poked in center comes out clean.
8. Cool 5 minutes.
9. Loosen sides of muffins from pan if needed, and take them out of the pan.

10.Makes 12 muffins.


Tip: If you do not have fresh strawberries, you can use frozen strawberries that you have thawed and drained.

We eat salads with spinach, strawberries, blueberries, walnuts and feta cheese & use a walnut raspberry vinaigrette (made by Ken's). It's yummy and healthy!

Mmmmm, mmmmm, mmmm! I was always told that you couldn't hull or wash berries before freezing them or they'd be mush when you took them out later. I will try your method next time.
