Reminder! Time to Buy Strawberries and Freeze!

In my area of the country, it's strawberry season! This means buying strawberries on sale in bulk, hulling them and freezing them! I just paid $1.29 a pound, soaked them in a vinegar/water mix (takes out some of the pesticides), hulled them and froze them (after they are hulled I just put them right in baggies and freeze!). I just did 5 pounds and will do more later when they go on sale again. Strawberries frozen were about $9.00 for four pounds last I checked so this saves some more pennies to add up to dollars to save or purchase items on sale!

Happy Savings!

  2. I just stopped a week or so ago and picked 6 pounds of strawberries in 20 minutes, because we didn't have much time. Oh what fun it was! I then made 2 batches of strawberry jam with them. Next time I go, I want to put the berries up for my smoothies. Great suggestions for this time of year!!!
