    Default Freezer

    My dad used to freeze them by the carrier-bag load in a chest freezer and they'd keep us going for months.

    Does freezing them have any impact on their stringy-ness, or was he just better than me at picking them promptly?

    Freezing makes no difference to the stringyness. You need to pick them young.
