We've talked about how to find the best strawberries. Now let's discuss what to do with the red beauties once they're home from market. "Eat them plain while standing over the kitchen sink" may be a perfectly valid recipe, but in case you had grander plans in mind we love this guide from Whole Foods Market Cooking on how to select, store, and cook spring's greatest fruit.
Susan Pachikara has great advice on how to buy the best strawberries (tip: always spring for organic) and how to store them (unwashed, in a single layer), but in particular we love her guide on how to freeze your own strawberry bounty for the cold winter months. It's as easy as hulling, freezing well-spaced on a cookie sheet, and then storing in tightly sealed bags. Voila! Strawberry goodness year round that you can feel good about.
