The search for an efficient way to preserve this most-precious of fruit is not new to man, as our ancestors explored several ways to preserve strawberries by drying and all that.

One good way that works for me in freezing strawberries is by keeping the berries in ice cube trays. The steps involved in this as follows;
- Wash the strawberries. Make sure you pick berries that are looking good and free from molds. - Place the the washed berries in a place where they can get dried. - Take the dried berries and place them in a zip-lock bag. - Place the bag in your refrigerator to freeze, remember to put a date label on the bag. source:
