Fresh strawberries - whether from the organic market or self-harvested - you can easily freeze as a whole fruit:

It is important that you thoroughly wash the strawberries before freezing. To avoid damaging the fruit, it is best to clean it in cold, stagnant water, for example in a large bowl or in the sink.
Now remove all stems and remaining foliage.
Then dab the berries dry with some kitchen paper or a towel. They must not be wet when frozen so that no ice builds up.
To prevent the fruits from sticking together later on thawing, you freeze them: Place berry for berry next to each other on a flat plate or a tray. The berries should not touch here. Then put everything in the freezer for one to two hours.
To make room again, you can then fill the strawberries in their final freezer. Put the pre-frozen berries in a stainless steel freezer and store them in the refrigerator. Frozen fresh strawberries keep frozen for about eight months.

Remove stalks and foliage and then gently pat the strawberries dry with a towel.
Put the strawberries in a tall container and puree them into a creamy cream.
If you want the purée even creamier and finer, sweep it with a spoon through a fine sieve before freezing. So you can just catch the small cores.
Now pour the strawberry puree into a stainless steel freezer or a glass.
Tip : You can also pour your pureed strawberry nut into ice cube molds. Frozen strawberry ice cubes taste wonderful in champagne, mineral water or homemade cocktails.
