Whole Foods Promotion: Organic Strawberries

What an amazing deal at Whole Foods (thanks, Bek!) Organic strawberries will be on sale for only $1.99 / 1-lb. package on Friday, April 29th, while supplies last. I plan on going in the morning and stocking up. We won't be able to eat them all fresh, so I'll be freezing a bunch. Frozen strawberries are perfect for our morning smoothies.

There are lots of ways to freeze strawberries, but I prefer the simplest method with no added sugar. Select fruit that's perfectly ripe, making sure not to include any that are too soft or bruised. Remove stems and caps, wash and drain well. Thoroughly dry - you don't want any remaining moisture on your strawberries. Freeze overnight in a single layer on cookie sheets. When completely frozen, transfer to containers or freezer bags. They can be stored for up to 6 months.
