I'm planning to do a strawberry mead soon, but I need to get a bucket of cherries out of my freezer first. I guess I'll be a month or two behind you guys. Also, I have 10 gallons of orange blossom honey, so I'll be using that instead of wild flower.

Cool...Ok..I think we'll start this either this coming Saturday or Sunday. What say you all? Aye or Nay? We will use hightests SNA as posted here on HBT. Please be sure to take all readings (temp, OG, etc) before you pitch your yeast.

Look in the freezer section at your grocery store. You can usually find frozen strawberries for MUCH less than what's in the produce dept and they should work just as well. After all, you're going to freeze them anyway!

agreed...just look in your freezer section..just check the ingredients..it it should just say Strawberries,or strawberries and water. They put these in a blast chiller, to quickly freeze them..so they are every bit as good as fresh berries. I am using strawberries we grew in our garden, and then i froze using dry ice..to quickly freeze them whole.
