Five Best Strawberry Recipes!

Five Best Strawberry Recipes!

I’m going to be hon­est, I buy berries all year long. We eat them almost every morn­ing, whether they’re on top of gra­nola or por­ridge or rolled up into a nut but­ter break­fast wrap, I pack them in lunches and dole them out as after school snacks. Do I love the berries we eat in Jan­u­ary. Meh. They’ll do. But now. Now is the time for amaz­ing local berries. The small-ish, red-all-the-way-through gems that pop­u­late the stores now are the ticket. They’re sweet and taste like — wait for it! — straw­ber­ries. So, do not miss the win­dow. There are a mil­lion ways to enjoy them — here are just a few of our faves.

Straw­berry and Banana Nice Cream. An ice cream that doesn’t require a machine? Yes, please! This fresh creamy treat comes together so eas­ily you’ll be mak­ing it once a week this summer.

This Quick Straw­berry Jam means you can save the sweet flavour of in-season straw­ber­ries for a lit­tle while longer. Hon­estly, you won’t believe how easy this is.

June_StrawberryShortcakeSliders

Is this the ulti­mate sum­mer dessert? It just might be. This is our ver­sion — kind of the slider of Straw­berry Short­cakes. They’re small scale so if you feel like hav­ing two or three, we say go for it — sum­mer is short!

Rhubarbcrostata

This is our favourite way to make a pie. Cro­tatas are nat­u­rally imper­fect, which works for us! Plus, the lit­tle hole in the mid­dle allows the beau­ti­ful fruit inside shine through.

Fish-Tacos

Add a lit­tle sweet­ness to your next taco (or chip or grilled chicken or… you get the idea) with this amaz­ing straw­berry salsa.
