What to do with a box of strawberries Whenever I get to go to Farmer Market, I usually get a box of strawberries because it's cheaper when I bought them in large quantities. I often got asked, "What would you do with so many strawberries?" So I thought I wrote this post to answer the question.

Right after I got home, I usually hulled those strawberries, then asked my 6 years old to cut them into half.
Afterward, I would do the rinsing-strawberries-with-vinegar-trick to make berries last longer.

I would then freeze some for snack or for future used but in order for them not to stuck together in the Ziploc, I (or my lovely assistant here) would have to arrange them in a baking pan then freeze them overnight then move them into a Ziploc bag the day after.
