Ideas?

We're planning on going to pick strawberries this weekend (weather cooperating) and I'm hoping to pick enough to do some canning/preserving.  Most of the recipes follow the same basic outline, but what do you do when you preserve strawberries?  What is your favorite technique?  What other flavors do you add?

And, do you have any other ideas for saving berries through the year?  I don't have a ton of freezer space, so I'm trying to get creative.

i love to make strawberry freezer jam. it is so easy...buy the fruit pectin and it has instructions. you don't even have to cook the fruit beforehand and it is so yummy to have the cold jam on warm bread or buscuits! you'll have to post what you end up making! have fun.
