    The easiest way is to freeze. Cap, dust w/ sugar and freeze.

    Next option is a bit more difficult. Do you have a Blue Ball canning book? If so look it up, if not hit google. Make conserve not jam or jelly (too much trouble, IMHO).

    Ive been putting them up and I did think about making some jelly till I thought about how much work it would be.So I guess the freezer is where they will go or maybe a Strawberry Margarita.

    On Goodeats AB froze them quickly with dry ice. He said the quick freezing kept them from being mushy when thawed

    Janet tells me that she washes the berries and puts them in clean jars and freezes them...no sugar or anything else. They will keep for a year that way. The are only slightly mushie that way. We save our Jam and Peanut Butter jars after use to store the berries in...works great.

    When we tried freezer bags we had freezer burn within 6 months. AND very mushie berries when thawed.

    Rhubarb around here is about done... Rhubarb/Strawberry pie comes to mind! But as mentioned above, freeze the leftovers, dont send them to waste...

    Our Rhubarb is just getting 'broad-leafed'. We hope it will be pickable at the same time the strawberries are ready too.
    We love the combination stewed and served hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
