Lots of strawberries, need more ideas please.
I have lots of strawberries and have made jam, pie, muffins and bread. I still have 3 quarts left. ANy ideas? TIA
My cousin just made a delicious salad with lettuce (not sure what kind, but not romaine or iceberg), finely diced cheese, toasted slivered almonds and sliced strawberries. She made a vinaigrette of chopped garlic, olive oil and apple cider vinegar. It was absolutely delicious.
The other day, I had some strawberries that were just about to go bad and made one of my favorite syrups. A bunch of strawberries, cut up and put over low heat. Add a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar and reduce. You can throw the whole thing over ice cream, other fruit or do what I did and pour it all into a nice cold glass of vodka and club soda.
recently America's Test Kitchen did a recipe for a berry fool. It would probably be excellent with all strawberries. Also, ice cream or sorbet.
Strawberry lemonade- I just stir lots of strained strawberry puree into my favorite (slightly less sweetened) lemonade recipe.
- dip in chocolate (white and/or dark)
- strawberry salsa
- drizzle with *good* balsamic vinegar (add a pinch of sugar if it's very acidic), season with pepper, and serve over vanilla ice cream or ricotta
- mash and fold into cream cheese or goat cheese - spread on toast, bagels or crackers
- strawberry soup
- spinach salad
- milkshakes or smoothies
- strawberry cheesecake
you can also freeze or dehydrate some.
