Maintain the freshness of your strawberries by doing these simple steps:
The key to keeping your strawberries fresh are to kill any spores on the fruit. The white vinegar pH level does that job.
- Prepare a salad spinner/ a bowl with strainer, and soak the strawberries for 2mins: fill 1litre of water and 200ml of white vinegar or 5:1 ratio.
- Drain the water and rinse the fruit under running water.
- Lightly tap the fruit using a cloth or kitchen towel.
- Prepare a new kitchen towel and place it on the base of the container
- Put the fruits back in the container and place it in the fridge (If you are using an air-tight container, leave the lid slightly open to avoid moisture from building up)
Eat them fresh or frozen! Here’s sharing our yummy homemade frozen strawberry yogurt recipe below:
- 4 cups of strawberries
- 2 tablespoon of honey
- 1/3 cup full plain Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Wash the strawberries and remove the stems. Slice in half.
- Lay the strawberries out evenly over a sheet of parchment paper and place into the freezer overnight or for at least 4-5 hours.
- Add the frozen strawberries, honey, greek yogurt, and lemon juice to a food processor.
- Process until creamy, about 5 minutes. You may need to scrape down the sides. If you find the strawberries are not fully blending, you can remove half and blend in batches and/or add a little water to help it along.
- Test for sweetness and add additional honey as needed.
- Serve immediately or transfer to an airtight container and freeze for 2-3 hours for harder consistency.
