When I was making my Strawberry Lemonade concentrate, the original recipe called for 6 cups of strawberries.
I stared at the four pound package of strawberries in Costco, trying to figure out how many 6 cups of strawberries were. I was so lost....
How many strawberries will fit into a measuring cup? Three?
After some research, how many cups of strawberries depend upon if they are being used whole, sliced, mashed or pureed.
Here's a handy dandy formula for you:
1 pound of strawberries = 3 3/4 cups whole
3 cups sliced
1 3/4 cup mashed
2 cups pureed
So, for my four pound package of Costco strawberries, I got eight cups of puree!
