Preparing strawberries for freezing. Wash in water with vinegar. Remove the stems and place the individual berries on cookie sheets. Put the cookie sheets in the freezer for a couple hours. Then, when the strawberries are partially frozen, place them in freezer bags. Because of the extra effort, the strawberries don't freeze in one great big block and can be picked out individually for use.
