Canning strawberries?

I tried these instructions for canning strawberries.  While I knew they wouldn't be like fresh, I was hoping to get something maybe similar to frozen.
First problem was that they didn't make near enough of their own syrup to fill the jars.  So I added a very light canning syrup.  The whole process was easy to do.  So then after a month I opened a jar to have over ice cream.  Yuck!  The strawberries were colorless & tasteless.  Not a success at all!  I guess I'll go back to drying my excess strawberries instead.  Those are yummy!
