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.

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.
