The time of berry picking is long over, and in my house, we are relishing those sweet tastes of summer and harvest because we make jellies and jams, frozen veggie stews and frozen and canned fruits and veggies whenever possible.  In addition to their large garden, my parents' property has wild plum and mulberry trees, and next year I think my mother'll plant strawberries and raspberries.  I plan on trying my hand at blueberries next year, too.  I LOVE homemade jellies and jams.  They are my favorite way to use fruits if not fresh.  And remember, if you adjust your recipes so they don't gel as well, you've got syrup!

But, my FAVORITE thing to do with strawberries probably shouldn't be talked about on a public board.  And THERE's another idea!

I'm quite fond of quartering them and giving them a splash of Balsamic vinegar. I let them rest for an hour or so to get the juices mixing then erve over vanilla ice cream or a plain sponge cake or scone.

This may be a little off topic, but I was thinking not too long ago that it would be cool to have a small indoor shelving area in my house where I could grow some straberries and herbs and maybe even some cherry tomatos. I hate the outdoors and have no gardening experience, so the only way Ill ever do any gardening is by doing it indoors. Do you think its possible to grow strawberries inside with a grow light?

This is verrrrrry late, but one of my favourite foods is summer pudding! (Blimey, guv'nor, we British looooove our puddings. Grin)You do need other berries too, preferably darker ones like blackcurrants, blackberries and cherries.

First you get some white bread slices, cut the crusts off and line a big bowl with them. Then you warm all the fruit in a pan with a little sugar and water and pour it into the bread-lined bowl. Next you cut out a lid for the bowl out of bread (has to be able to cover the bowl tightly)and put in on top of the whole thing.
Then you put a plate upside-down on top of it and weigh it down with things so it'll press the fruit juices into the bread to absorb it. Leave it all in the fridge overnight and in the morning, take the weights off, hold the bowl and plate together and turn the pudding over. Then lift the bowl up and the pudding will turn out onto the plate.
All you have to do then is cut bits off it and eat them (with or without cream)! Grin

Make strawberry trifle Smiley

Pound cake (drizzled in dry sherry, if you wish)
strawberries (and or other fruits)
whipped topping

Wonderful any time of year, my mom makes a huge bowl of this and uses blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and sometimes blackberries. Best pudding we've used is cheesecake pudding, but french vanilla is also delicous

Marinated strawberries


Strawberries! about half a liter maybe?
1dl sugar
the juice of one orange
1-3 tbl spoons Grand Marin orange liquor (or similar)
grated (is that the right word? we say 'scratched') orange peal

Cook the juice and the sugar until the sugar solves. Add liquor (if you don't want the alcohol-bit, boil it). Add the peal (make sure you don't get any of the white stuff in there..) Let it cool, then add sliced strawberries and put it in the fridge for like an hour or so, so the strawberries will really suck in the juice... Serve with vanilla ice cream

Strawberries with yoghurt


Turkish yoghurt, or "natural" yoghurt with has rested in a coffee-filter over night blended with some whipped cream
Roasted, thin slices of almond

Slice the strawberries and put them in the bottom of a see-through cup or glass. Pour a bit of honey on top of them, then fill up with yoghurt. Add some more honey, and sprinkle some almonds over it.

Nutella strawberries
Great for a lovesnack in bed... Smiley

Cut strawberries in half (or almost in half, whatever you wish)
Top/fill with nutella

so tasty... Smiley
