From a friend of The Cookery’s across Austin:  Here’s a quick flavor favor for strawberry lovers:

“I probably mentioned already that with this glut of wonderful strawberries, I’m whizzing them in the blender by the pound, pouring them into an ice-cube tray (1 lb. = 1 tray) , freezing them, then packing them in a freezer Baggie for smoothies when they disappear out of the supermarkets.”

We like this idea and we’ve tested it with great results. Thanks for sharing!
