Strawberry Recipes

The fragrant, sweet juiciness and deep red colour of strawberries can brighten up both the taste and aesthetics of any meal; it is no wonder they are the most popular berry fruit in the world.

Strawberries should be eaten as soon as possible. Do not remove the stalks or wash them until you are ready to use them.

To store strawberries, place them on a paper towel in a tightly-covered container and store in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days. Leave the stalks on until ready to eat.

Strawberries are easily frozen. Gently wash them, dry, and remove the caps. Place on a baking tray and freeze. Once frozen, place in a zip-top bag, suck out the air with a straw, and seal. Return to the freezer for up to 6 months. Bear in mind, however, that defrosted strawberries do not hold their shape.
