General Strawberry Information

At home immediately sort and remove soft or bruised strawberries–before refrigerating. Store whole, unwashed strawberries in a flat dish and cover to maintain a humid atmosphere. When ready to use, rinse quickly in cold water, dry and then remove caps (caps or hulls preserve the flavors and nutrients).

FREEZING: Use only firm, ripe strawberries. Wash in cold water. Drain well and hull.

For Dry Pack: Add 3/4 cups sugar to 1quart of strawberries; turn gently until sugar is dissolved. Pack.

For Syrup Pack: Use 40% syrup (3cups sugar in 4 cups water); place a small amount of syrup in freezer container before adding fruit; mix and freeze.

For Unsweetened Pack: Pack in either juice or in a little water to which 1 teaspoon crystalline ascorbic acid has been added (per quart of strawberries). Always leave 1 to 2 inch room at top of container for expansion. Place a piece of crumpled waxed paper on top to keep fruit in juice.
