The other day someone asked me if I had any strawberry recipes on this site that I could share with them. “I might have 1 or 2” was my reply.
Let’s all just chuckle right now.
Apparently I like strawberries more than I’m willing to admit. Or maybe it’s the fact that we love to go strawberry picking and always pick way too many, such as 13 pounds too much.
So today, before we go strawberry picking for the year and before I share the strawberry sangria punch recipe that is coming up soon, here’s a few strawberry recipes from the past few years. Just a few….
Let’s start with the weird.
Where can you find them? Usually you have to own your own plants or ask the people at pick your own farms if it’s ok if you pick some.
Why would you want green strawberries? It’s just a different experience and believe it or not, they can add a great flavor. They’re not super sweet and remind me a little bit of a tangy cucumber. It’s worth trying them!
Green Strawberry Pickle Relish – also known as pickled strawberries.
You just thought texans fried everything! But did you know we also pickle it?
Pickled green strawberries are actually really good. It’s very close to actual relish but not as sweet as traditional pickle relish. This would be a great topping on fish or on top of cream cheese and served with crackers.
Have you ever made granita? It’s the perfect summer treat. It’s like a crunchy snow cone that is wrapped in flavor without the sticky syrup. They’re really easy to make and your kids will think you’re a genius.
Green strawberry granita is good. It’s very light and fresh, the perfect treat for after a morning of yard work.
Now for the more normal recipes –
Slap yo’ momma, apologize and then do it again because that is how good this is.
It’s so simple but the perfect treat on your morning toast.
Because summer is coming!
Forgive the not-so-great photos and make these. Then eat them all and blame it on your kids. Not that I have ever done that.
Because sometimes you reach a point when the only choice you have left with strawberries is to dip them in chocolate.
That’s all the strawberry love I can give for now or at least until I can sneak away to the strawberry fields.
