Yesterday’s fresh-picked strawberries have become today’s frozen strawberries. Eventually, they’ll become some sort of homemade strawberry deliciousness: ice cream, margarita or mojito, cake topping, ice cream… Yeah, I realize I mentioned ice cream twice. Homemade strawberry ice cream deserves to be mentioned at least twice.
Since I’m not sure exactly what I’ll do with these berries yet, I’m just freezing them naked (no sugar). Then, when I’ve fallen completely in love with some recipe for jam or ice cream or jelly, I’ll pull them out, thaw them, and get cooking!
What’s your favorite way to use the springtime explosion of strawberries?
