 Time to Stock Up on Fresh Strawberries!

Zaycon Foods just gave me a call to let me know they are bring fresh strawberries to Boise in June!  The time to order your strawberries is NOW!

  • So FRESH, they are picked the same day they are delivered!
  • Buy in bulk… 32 pounds {4 flats with (8) 1-pound clam shells in each flat}
  • Limited quantities, so order yours now before they sell out!

You’ll be able to pick up your strawberries on Saturday June 16th.  Out of town?  Get a friend to pick them up for you!

Here is a great way to preserve your strawberries in the freezer (if now isnt’ a good time to make jam, or if you want to save some for smoothies).  And watch for a “How to Make Homemade Freezer Jam” tutorial soon!  It’s about the only “canning” I do!  :)

Trying to determine how much to buy?

You can get 2 cups of pureed berries in one pound (source).  You’ll need 2 cups of pureed strawberries for 1 batch of freezer jam (about 5 pints).

How do you get your hands on some yummy strawberries?

  • Register with Zaycon Foods
  • Pick it up or arrange for a friend to pick it up (in a few different locations in the Treasure Valley) on the delivery date.
  • Enjoy!

 Don’t live in Boise?  You’re in LUCK!

You can still register at Zaycon Foods!  They deliver chicken, ground beef, seafood, and fresh produce all over the country!  If you register now (use a good email address, you want to be on their list!), then you’ll get email notifications when they bring great deals on food in your town!

  1. Any idea if this is cheaper than the large frozen bags at Costco?

  2. Just found my answer: Kirkland Signature
    Frozen Strawberries
    6 lbs
    $10.45
    So thats $1.74/lb. So this is a better deal! But I guess I have to factor in time to cut all the stems off.

  3. Are they pesticide free by any chance?
