Strawberry math, tips for berry measurements
It is difficult to give specific measurements for berries because the sizes determine how many fit into a pint or a cup. A cup of large berries will contain fewer berries than a cup of smaller berries. You should always measure frozen berries frozen, as thawed ones become soft and pack down. Below is a conversion table with some typical measurements.
|1 lb Fresh||
16 oz bag Frozen
|Whole||3 3/4 cups||3 cups|
|Sliced||3 cups||2 cups|
|Pureed||2 cups||1 1/2 cups|
|Mashed||1 3/4 cups|
How to Handle Strawberries
- Strawberries can become faint from overcrowding, so when you get home, spread the berries on a tray giving them enough air.
- Discard any spoiled strawberries.
- Always store in the refrigerator.
To maintain freshness, keep the stems and tops on the strawberries.
- Do not rinse strawberries until you are ready to use them.
- Rinse strawberries in cold water very briefly. Drain in a roomy colander and spread them on paper towels to air-dry out of the sun.
