Freezing fresh Strawberries in Sugar is a great way to enjoy Strawberries throughout the year. It’s really quick, easy and a great way to get started in the home preservation of fruits and vegetables. Sadly, local Strawberries are only available for a few weeks each year so, freezing them insures you have a good supply to last for months to come. Give it a try, you’ll love them.



  • 3 – quarts of fresh Strawberries.
  • 2 1/4 – cups of Sugar, more or less.
  • Approved freezer storage containers or bags.
