Can you use frozen strawberries for jam making?
Yes, you can! Our fruit is picked and frozen at the height of their season so the quality is high and you won't get runny jam. You will find it takes a little longer for your jam to boil if using them straight from frozen, and you may have to wait a little longer to achieve the right consistency, but you will end up with a delicious Strawberry Jam.
How are our Strawberries frozen?
We pick and freeze our strawberries on our farm in Herefordshire, England - so you can buy them with confidence knowing they are UK-grown. Our British IQF Strawberries are Individually Quick Frozen, which is a super-quick way to freeze fresh food. This method ensures that our fruit will be frozen with almost no ice crystals inside and therefore less damage occurs to the fruit's cells, resulting in a higher quality product.
What are some recipes using frozen strawberries?
