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.

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)
