End of Strawberry Season

I had given up on getting any more good strawberries here in Malawi. It’s the end of the season, so the price is going up and the quality is going down.  Sadly we missed most of strawberry season while we were in the States, so I didn’t get a large batch of strawberries frozen for smoothies throughout the year.  I mentioned that to Matt the other day… and then today he came home with 13 kgs of great strawberries for me.  That’s 29 pounds of strawberries!  And he got a great deal on them!

Bowls and bowls and mounds and piles of strawberries!  So guess what I did today…

I cleaned strawberries for about 2 hours.  We kept a bowl of them to eat, and froze then bagged the rest to keep in the deep freeze for the next several months.

Almost done!  The last quarter of the box remains.  I think we’ll have strawberry pie tomorrow, and then smoothies throughout the hot season!
