canning strawberries link
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!
