Some have asked what I did with the strawberries we picked! Well we decided to wait for jam. Instead I made two bags of frozen strawberries for smoothies, and strawberry sauce.
For the frozen strawberries, I hulled them and then placed them on a small cookie sheet, sprinkled with a little sugar and froze them. After they were frozen-about two hours, I put them in zip lock bags.
Simple Strawberry Puree/syrup
By April 17, 2012Published:
- Yield: 7-8 cups of puree
A combination of puree strawberries, some lemon juice and sugar. Good for ice cream, waffles, or use it to make strawberry lemonade, or strawberry limade.
- Clean and hull strawberries.
- Fill blender up with half of strawberries. Puree. I leave some pieces of strawberry, use your own judgment of what you want.
- Add lemon juice and sugar (if really sweet strawberries, don't add so much sugar. )
- Pour into containers. I used freezer canning jars (got them on clearance) fill and freeze.
