The oldest and most common method of storing strawberries is to cook them into a preserve and seal them in jars with wax.

The second oldest way to preserve strawberries would be making them into a type of fruit leather with apples and other fruits hammered into a paste and dried in the sun.

For modern storage, strawberries can be frozen, dehydrated, and made into jellies, jams, and preserves.
