Whats some good strawberry preparations?

Asked by buster (10239points) May 8th, 2008

I have been working in Alabama and someone gave me a bunch of strawberries they just picked. They are diggity dank. Ive been eating them raw and usually we have them with angel food cake. I need some more ideas on ways to use them.

Fresh, warm, unsprayed strawberries (groaning w. envy), there may be nothing better, IMO, but if you must, make home-made ice cream, or add real whipped cream or make a Pavlova.

This is a baked meringue shell, filled w. sliced strawberries (raspberries or kiwis, or any combo) and covered w. sweetened whipped cream. From our Ozzie and Kiwi friends down under.

My Mother used to serve them on a plate with a side dish of brown sugar and dollop of sour cream. One would take the strawberry- dip it in the sour cream then the brown sugar and eat. It is light and delicious.

chocolate covered strawberries; or just add them to cereal; or serve a bowl of fruit (strawberries, blueberries, bananas) add milk and lots of nuts.

Slice them, drizzle with balsamic syrup, and grind some black pepper on top.

Aside: green grapes and fresh, peeled peach slices also mix really well with brown sugar and sour cream.

And there is always the strawberry Daiquiri.

If you put the strawberries in a bowl, sprinkle some sugar over them, add some balsamic vinegar, toss it all together, cover it and let it sit for at least an hour, the strawberries will begin to break down, creating a beautiful and delicious syrup at the bottom of the bowl. Topped with some whipped cream, the berries, syrup and light sweetness of the cream make a truly delectable dessert.

“Doubtless God might have made a better berry than the strawberry, but doubtless God never did.” Attributed to a Bishop named Dr. Butler or Boteler in the early 16th century.
