There is nothing like fresh strawberries in a recipe but when strawberries are unavailable frozen strawberries are a good substitution that allows you to still enjoy that great strawberry flavor. Shown below is more detailed information on substituting frozen strawberries for fresh berries in a recipe.
- If the frozen strawberries are unsweetened, use equal amounts of frozen berries as called for fresh in the recipe. Follow the rest of the recipe as directed.
- If the frozen strawberries are sweetened use the same amount of berries as fresh, but reduce the amount of sugar called for in the recipe by 1 cup for each quart of strawberries.
- If a sugar syrup has been used to sweeten the frozen berries, as shown in All About Strawberries, reduce the amount of liquid called for in the recipe.
