Fresh Summer StrawberriesThe season has come when strawberries are once again affordable and abundant in the store. But are you tired of the same old strawberries and cream? Or maybe you just want to try something new and interesting with your box o' berries? Here are 5 surprising new ways you can prepare strawberries to impress your family, friends, and even dinner party guests.
1. Roasted Strawberries: Did you know that you can cook strawberries in the oven? They get just as juicy, sweet, and sticky as they do on the stove top, but keep their shape much better. The flavors seem more concentrated too. Just line a jelly-roll pan with parchment paper (for easy cleanup!) and toss 1 lb. strawberries, hulled and halved, with 2 tsp. olive oil and 1 tsp. sugar. Roast for 20 to 30 minutes in a 400 degree oven. Perfect as an accent to your cheese plate, topping for ice cream, or swirled into yogurt.
