Strawberries in the Freezer

I've finished my strawberry preserving for the season, barring any that we can't manage to eat fresh from our own patch. I froze most of another flat yesterday for a total of 7 gallons whole frozen strawberries. I ended up paying $34 for all the berries, so it worked out to about $4.90/gallon. I've still got 9 1/2 pints of jam and 3 pints of strawberry honey ice cream topping from last year. This is fine by me, I've never noticed any degradation of quality. I can't wait until we manage to grow enough that we don't need to buy them. I'd better get out there are start preparing the new bed...
