    Umm Patti

    They look georgous much better than what we currently are getting over here - (foreign forced fruit) It will be better once the British ones are ripe - I can't wait. In the meantime enjoy yum yum.
    Have to say I like Moonpi's idea of shortcake.

    Mmmmmmmmmm nom nom nom. When we were kids Mom and Dad used to take us to 'Pick Your Own' strawberry farms. Dad used to tease me that they would weigh me on the way in, then way me on the way out to see how much I'd eaten during picking! :lol:

    Nice idea....make a victoria sponge cake (ie two layers of sponge cake, can send you a recipe if you want). Using a potato masher, mash a couple of generous handfuls of strawberries in a bowl (helps if you chop them in half first). Then press this through a seive so you are left with strawberry syrup and strawberry mush. Add the syrup to some whipping cream and whip until nice and stiff. Use the mush and a little of the strawberry cream to sandwich the two layers of sponge together. Use the rest of the strawberry cream to decorate the cake, using a piping bag or just slathering it on with a palette knife! :lol:

    I always do this for my Dad's birthday!

    Mary - when I used to go PYO as a child, my Mum said the same to me about the weighing!

    Patti, I'd just eat those as they are, if I could get to them before my kids! Mine are all in flower so won't be long now!

    Toooo late for any more options....made homemade strawberry ice cream custard today!!! YUMMY!!!!! I kept out 1 quart to just eat, made a batch of ice cream and pureed the other quarts and froze them. Now I can either add the puree to smoothies, make a syrup with it or make more Ice cream. Its sooo yummy, wish you all could come over for ice cream!!

    K, I really wish it would..I'd send you some. It does taste more like the full cream gelato that you can get in Italy than our regular ice cream. I have NO idea where I got the recipe :roll: I did find that (since I have the eating habits of a 12 yr old), that I like the European ice cream MUCH better than ours :roll:

    I live right in the middle of STRAWBERRY HEAVEN! The Santa Maria Valley! CALIFORNIA! We have fresh strawberries for so long. One of my favorite ways to eat them is to dip them in sour cream and then in brown sugar.
