9 THINGS YOU CAN DO WITH STRAWBERRIES

Tomorrow is National Pick a Strawberry Day! I feel as though this day is highly underrated and should be celebrated much more. Strawberries are definitely my favorite fruit, and they go great with so many things.

To celebrate, I have collected a list of nine really awesome things to do with strawberries. Some I have tested and approved, others just sound really good and would like to try them myself.

Step one to celebrate this day is to find a local strawberry patch, a pick your own (u-pick) strawberry field. If there isn’t one close to you, or it is still too early in the season, store bought strawberries will work also.

SStrawberry Jamtrawberry Jam

Let’s be honest, no one makes strawberry jam as good as grandma made it. Unfortunately for me, grandma never wrote down her recipe. It was always just a little bit of this, and a little bit of that. When I wasn’t looking, I think is when she would sprinkle in her secret ingredient. I have tried several times to make jam as good as my grandma and still haven’t mastered it. But this recipe is as close as I have come.

Two childhood foods put into one recipe, Nutella and poptarts. The kiddos are guaranteed to love this one.

This recipe is a personal favorite. Strawberry Rhubarb pie is my favorite pie! It goes great with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream. Disclaimer: Do not try rhubarb uncooked and by itself, it is not good.
