Strawberry Season

It's Strawberry Season again.  Well not here, but in some parts of America.  So each time I walk into the produce department, I am faced with luscious looking strawberries.  The problem with this is I cannot justify buying fresh strawberries when I have pints and pints frozen at home with no plan for how to use them up.

What do you do with a whole bunch of frozen strawberries?  You make Strawberry Crisp.  I found this recipe on Pinterest so if any of you are in the same predicament I highly recommend it.  It says to serve warm with vanilla ice cream, But in my opinion it's better refrigerated with whip cream.

  1. Now that's an idea I hadn't thought of. I make peach crisp. Blueberry crisp. It's funny that Strawberry didn't come to mind.
    I whirl my frozen berries up into a fruit "sorbet". Now I have a new use. Thanks!

  2. Along the lines of Sorbet, I make popsicles in the summer. Puree the berries, add some lemonade or other juice, and freeze in popsicle forms. Not appropriate for February... most years!
