Strawberry season is short, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy these farm-fresh fruits all year long. Follow these steps to properly freeze strawberries!
You’ll need: 4-6 lbs fresh strawberries Half baker sheets (fit best in most freezers) Parchment paper
To freeze: Gently wash berries under tap water. If berries are mushy or damaged, remove them. Spread your berries out on a towel and allow them to air dry. Using your paring knife, hull the berries by removing the stem and the bit underneath. You can also just slice the top of the berry off, but you get more of the fruit with hulling. Line baker sheets with parchment paper and freeze the berries overnight. When completely frozen, put berries in heavy duty freezer bags and label with the date. Frozen strawberries will last up to one year.

You’ve picked the perfect Christmas tree. Now it’s time to trim it! Beautiful ornaments don’t have to be store bought and original tree garlands were often made from natural items such as dried fruit, cinnamon sticks, popcorn, etc. Try this easy garland made of dried orange slices and ribbon!
2 medium oranges
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Cut the oranges into 2 cm slices. Blot the slices with paper towels to remove some of the moisture (this will help them dry faster). Place the orange slices on a cooling rack. Turn the slices every half hour for 2-3 hours.
Using the yarn needle, poke a hole near the top of the orange and run the ribbon through. That’s it! Time to decorate your tree!
