Last week we hit up our local strawberry field for some u-pick fun. You would think that eliminating the labor would make these cheaper strawberries, but in fact this activity is subject to the “novelty tax” — when one pays more for something that is supposed to be fun and unique! So here we have the most expensive strawberries on Earth. They really are amazingly ripe and delicious, but must be used quickly as they were picked at the freaking PEAK of ripeness. So let’s get to it! Quick and simple, two of my favorite strawberry recipes, which are both perfect and simple if you’re looking for a totally doable Mother’s Day dessert your kids will have no trouble whipping up (pun entirely intended).
Whipped Cashew Cream and Strawberries,
or make this into Strawberry Shortcake by pairing it with some plain scones. Use this Scone Recipe, just leave out the currants and make them all cute and round.
