Strawberries from my garden (and 10 Fun Ways to Use Them)

I adore strawberries. I’ve been waiting ever so patiently for the ones in my garden to ripen; yesterday I picked some and the wait was more than worth it…they’re fantastic.

Homegrown strawberries from Healthy Green Kitchen

I could definitely eat plain strawberries warmed from the sun all day long, but I also love to use them in all sorts of recipes. If you feel the same way, here are 10 ways to use the red beauties.

1. In a Green Salad with Goat Cheese and Almonds
2. Roasted with balsamic vinegar and used as a topping for Crostinis (from Nutmeg Nanny)
3. In a Strawberry Sorbet with Mint (from Nourished Kitchen)
4. Baked into a beautiful Strawberry Pie (from Brooklyn Supper)
5. Atop classic Strawberry Shortcakes (from Smitten Kitchen)
6. Blended into a creative Strawberry Shortcake Milkshake (from A Spicy Perspective)
7. Roasted and churned into Strawberry Ice Cream (from Zoe Bakes)
8. In refreshing Strawberry Coconut Popsicles (from The Coconut Mama)
9. Transformed into an all-natural Homemade Strawberry Soda Syrup
10. Cooked into a Spicy Strawberry Jam

What’s YOUR favorite way to eat strawberries?

  1. I make sun jam from Alice Waters’ recipe. It is on the PBS Victory Garden website. It’s the freshest tasting jam, since you don’t cook it.

  2. Your strawberries look amazing! I keep telling Art I cannot wait to get a house and be able to grow my own fruits, vegetables and herbs. I want chickens too but I’m not so sure he is on board with that idea…haha.

    Thank you for linking to my crostini. Roasted strawberries are my new favorite!

  3. Fresh strawberries dipped in sour cream and rolled in brown sugar…..yum. Of course I would never turn away any strawberry they are my favorite.

  4. YUM! All of the recipes look great, but a Strawberry ice cream (#7) sounds fantastic! Thanks for the great tips, and I look forward to trying them. I just want to make sure I keep them fresh for a while so the recipes turn out well. Thank you for the summer inspiration (:
