Hi :) I am joining Works for Me Wednesday on We Are THAT Family
I was ecstatic when I found strawberries for .99 at Aldi recently- We had sugared strawberries, strawberry shortcake, and chocolate dipped strawberries. Soon, we were tired of them. I looked at them and had a brainstorm- I should freeze some for later in the year when strawberries are expensive.
As I started to get to work, I thought about how I really dislike the bagged strawberries I usually buy because they take forever to crush in my blender when I make smoothies. So, I took about 10 minutes and cut my strawberries into pieces. Not tiny pieces, but in fourths. Then I took my cookie sheet, covered it in foil and put the pieces in the freezer. Then when they were frozen, I transferred them into a gallon ziplock bag. Now I have a ton of strawberries for about 4.00!
I think I am going to do the same thing with the pineapple that is .99 this week. I want to find a sale on peaches to freeze. Hopefully I can have a freezer full of food for the fall/winter. Hopefully this tip helps you :)
