Can Strawberries Be Frozen?

While fresh fruits and vegetables are always better then their frozen counterparts, sometimes that just isn’t an option. So in order to keep your strawberries from going bad, can they be frozen?

Yes, strawberries can be frozen!

They can be frozen whole, sliced, or even crushed depending on their intended use. It should be noted, however, that when the strawberries are unfrozen the texture is going to be different than when they were fresh. Thawed strawberries are often mushy, which can be unappealing to some people.

It may be best to serve frozen strawberries before they have fully thawed (some ice crystals still on them) in order to preserve a full and solid texture.

When frozen, strawberries tend to keep for approximately 8 to 12 months before going bad, opposed to the several days or weeks that fresh strawberries last.
