Strawberry pickin’ time. Possibly the most wonderful time of the year. Well, next to blueberry picking time, that is.
We had a friend who had a tradition of making strawberry shortcake for dinner every year after picking strawberries. Oh yeah, we adopted that tradition without hesitation.

It’s been years, though, since we’ve done that. The kids grow up, and some traditions are forgotten. But when I went strawberry picking the other day, I decided it was time to renew the tradition. We had strawberry shortcake for dinner, and again for dessert!
Fresh Strawberry Pie
There are so many great recipes for strawberries, aren’t there? Strawberry jam, strawberry-rhubarb pie, strawberry shortcake, and one of my all time favorites, fresh strawberry pie.
Fresh strawberry pie is great when the weather is hot, too, since the oven is only on for a short ten minutes to bake the crust.
What are some of your favorite ways to use fresh strawberries?
