I love strawberries.
We get a lot all at once from our garden and this year, I'm trying new (new to me) ways to make them last.
Strawberry pie - Folks love my very simple Strawberry pie (Graham crust, berries, sugar & cornstarch). Unfortunately they don't last. They seem to take on a whitiesh gray color and begin to crack. Looks really Ick!
Despite the appearance, they never go to waste. My husband eats anything. Bless his heart. He says the still taste fine, but I'm not serving such pies to my kids or guests.
So, I'm taking my fresh pies :) with nice fresh bright red color.
I'm going to freeze the pies before they get that off color. I'm concerned about freezer burn, so I'm covering the top with a thin layer of cool whip.
Will the topping get runny after thawing when I serve them? I don't know. We'll see in a couple of months when I take them out of the freezer.
(I'm also making jam and freezing berries for shortcake. But those will be separate posts)
Any similar experiences?
