My goal was to use ripe, in season strawberries. I'm concerned that the freezing and cooking will undermine the idea of using fresh berries. Has anyone tried using fresh berries with any luck?

It was a fresh, unpasteurized press from a small, local orchard. They do special small batch presses for people who want unpasteurized cider for brewing, etc. I believe it was also unfiltered.
