One of the many wonderful things about summer is the bounty of produce. We try to eat seasonally, so in the summer, while produce is at the peak of freshness I like to prep & freeze as much as possible for the winter.
When strawberries were on sale for $0.99/lb I went a little nuts & bought 10 lbs to be prepped & frozen. The frozen fruit isn't so fabulous on its own, but they're delicious in cereal, yogurt, or smoothies.
Though it's a lot of work, it's nice when the pickings are slim in the winter to be able to walk out to our freezer & taste the freshness of summer. Plus, the work is much more fun when it's overseen by the happiest little sous chef in town!
