We have never had such a bountiful harvest from our strawberries. It's wonderful! To be able to go out into the garden and pick fresh organic fruit is a very satisfying experience to start with, but then the taste is far better than anything you will ever buy in the supermarket.
So with a glut, having shared them out as much as we can, we are now trying to see what we can do with them. In case you are stuck for ideas I have put together this little info sheet with the best of the ideas I have come up with so far. Remember my rule - nothing tricky, fiddly or time-consuming, as I haven't got time! Plain, simple, honest good food with the minimal preparation. Thankfully, if you have grown your own strawberries, they will need minimal prep. any way, as they won't be covered in nasty chemicals. Of course - that's providing they haven't all been gobbled up - after all they are delicious on their own with honey and cultured cream!
Incidentally, the other day I was chatting with a lady about the virtues of organic food v. shop bought - especially ones grown yourself and she said that someone had said to her, that if the insects won't even look at the food as all it's goodness has been killed off by chemicals and poor farming methods, then what good will it do our bodies? I found it an interesting thought!
You could of course use milk kefir mixed with mashed strawberries to make ice-creams, but I have kept these recipes very simple and cheap. We don't have lots of milk kefir left after our normal usage, so I didn't presume you would have either.
