Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits I can buy year around at the local supermarkets. Either fresh or frozen.  I like to buy them in bulk when strawberries are on sale and freeze them for later use. I have heard you can can strawberries for later baking. However, it is something I have not tried yet.
