Works For Me Wednesday: Freezing past-prime strawberries for smoothies.

Strawberry season is here! (Or just about, depending on where you live.) Today's Works For Me Wednesday idea comes from my sister--Thanks, Sheree!

Buying strawberries in big packages can be a great deal, but unless you buy them to make jam, or a recipe like strawberry shortcake, or your family really likes strawberries and eats a lot of them, more than likely you'll end up with a handful (or more) strawberries that are past the perfect-for-eating stage, but aren't quite at the throw-away stage.

What to do?

Of course, you could still eat them, but if they are a little soft are you more likely to let them sit in the fridge until they fully at the throw-away stage and then throw them away because they're bad? This is usually me.

Now--thanks to my amazing sister--I'll cut up the less-than-perfect strawberries, freeze them in a single layer on a pan, put them in a bag, and use them for smoothies. Thanks, Sheree! Less food waste is always a good thing.
