Rescue for Fruit that's On The Verge!

I mentioned this in my coconut fruit smoothies recipe, but I thought I would elaborate.

We buy lots of fruit when it's on sale, but unfortunately sometimes we can't eat it all before it starts going bad. When I notice the first bit of "bad" fruit, I prepare the rest of it for freezing. I'll use strawberries as an example. Take off the stems and cut out any bad spots. Place fruit on a rimmed baking sheet and freeze for a couple hours. When frozen, simply pour fruit into a ziploc bag--it is now "individually frozen" and perfect for making smoothies or anything else.

And it's probably cheaper and healthier than commercially frozen fruit as well.
