Decide how you want to use your frozen berries - whole, halved, sliced, or macerated.
Remove the tops with a sharp paring knife.
Place a piece of parchment on a rimmed baking sheet and lay strawberries cut-side down on the tray.
Optional: Lay another piece of parchment on top of the berries and top with an additional layer of berries. You can do up to three layers of berries on the same baking sheet before it becomes precarious.
Allow the strawberries to freeze through (~3 hours) and then transfer to a freezer-proof storage container.
How to Freeze Macerated Strawberries
Slice your strawberries and place in a large bowl. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup of sugar or honey per 2 pounds of strawberries.
Allow the bowl to sit uncovered overnight in the fridge. Stir occasionally.
Pour into quart-sized freezer bags or wide-mouth canning jars leaving 1 inch of space between the top of the strawberries and the top of the jar.
If you're using Ziploc-style bags, removing additional air out of the bag will keep your berries safe from freezer burn. Place a straw in the corner of a freezer bag and close the bag as tightly as possible. Suck the air out through the straw 1-2 times and quickly remove the straw and seal the bag.Will keep in the freezer for 6-12 months.
