My favorite fruit of all time has to be a strawberry. I could literally eat them all summer long. And I DO. Here are some of my favorite uses for the strawberry harvest. And please, if you would like to pin a recipe, pin the original post, not this post — thanks!
This strawberry muffin recipe was one of my first modifications to “real food” and was soooo yummy. Sorry, no pic :(.
This strawberry-rhubarb pie is my favorite. (pic is not mine…I didn’t have a “pro” blogger mindset when I wrote these posts).
Again, not my photo, but this is my strawberry-rhubarb crisp for two recipe. My kids didn’t eat a lot yet, when I made this for the first time :). It’s still my favorite way to make it, however.
My mom used to make this as pies in a graham cracker crust, but my mother-in-law’s family makes it like this. Either way its super yummy!
I haven’t made these yet, but I’ve been pinning baked donut recipes. Not only can I control what goes into them, but they are super fresh. I can’t wait to try these!
My kids are always asking to make popsicles and this is a super simple fruit recipe. We will be trying to make these this summer for sure!
And finally, I love all things pancake and these strawberry pancakes look divine. I can’t wait to try these one morning!
Like I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I’m not a big preserver/canner, but I DO freeze a lot of strawberries. I do it two different ways.
First, I wash and flash-freeze them. These I mostly use for my smoothies.
Second, I chop them small/crush them and freeze in 2-4 cup portions in my freezer. No sugar. This way I can use them for winter strawberry shortcake or baked goods. Either way, I don’t have to adjust recipe.
Or you can make strawberry jam. I do this also — about every 2 years because it takes that long to use it all up.
