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. Â 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. Â I mentioned that to Matt the other dayâ€¦ and then today he came home with 13 kgs of great strawberries for me. Â That’s 29 pounds of strawberries! Â And he got a great deal on them!
Bowls and bowls and mounds and piles of strawberries! Â So guess what I did today…
I cleaned strawberries for about 2 hours. Â We kept a bowl of them to eat, andÂ froze thenÂ bagged the rest to keep in the deep freeze for the next several months.
Almost done! Â The last quarter of the box remains. Â I think we’ll have strawberry pie tomorrow, and then smoothies throughout the hot season!
