Expert Tips

Strawberries should be firm, plump and fully red with a notable fragance. For the best flavor, use berries within two days. Very large strawberries may make impressive garnishes but they can be hollow and not very flavorful. To preserve freshness, wash and hull strawberries just before you're ready to use them. Store berries in the refrigerator for up to two days. For longer storage, rinse and hull the berries, then freeze them in a single layer on a baking tray or plate. When they're firm, transfer the frozen berries to a plastic container or resealable freezer bag and keep them in the freezer for up to four months. 1 pound of fresh berries = about 1 quart (about 4 cups) 1 pint fresh berries = about 2 cups
