Some recipes call for strawberries by the pint or quart. Trouble is, strawberries aren’t always sold that way. Say you need a pint of strawberries, but your market sells them by the pound-how much do you buy? Or what if your recipe calls for 2 cups sliced strawberries-how many whole berries do you need? Questions like these come up all the time during recipe testing, so we worked out this little conversion chart (see below) to solve our shopping dilemmas.

1 quart = 1-1/2 lb. = 4 cups sliced (1/2 inch thick or quartered)
