It's strawberry time!

Updated on March 21, 2011

It's that time a year again - my grocery store just started carrying strawberries.

Here is a list of my favorite things to make using strawberries.

1) White cake with strawberry creme cheese frosting ( it's to die for)

You will need one box of white cake mix and the following:

1 to 2 pounds of strawberries, cleaned and hulled.
1/4 cup of confectioners sugar
1 8oz. pkg. of cream cheese, softened
1 12oz. container of cool whip
1 tsp. of vanilla

Bake cake according to package directions and cut it in half lengthwise. Slice 1 cup of strawberries and add confectioners sugar. Mix well. Let stand at least a half hour to let berries "juice." Mash well after that time.
Cream softened cream cheese with mixer and add vanilla.
Add strawberry mixture and mix well on low speed. Last, fold in cool whip and mix well.
Frost cake by putting mixture in the middle of the cake and then spreading it on top of the cake.
Slice remaining strawberries and cover cake with the slices. If strawberries are small to medium in size they can be halved to cover the cake. You will need more than a pound to do it that way, but it makes for a prettier cake.
Chill for at least 1 hour.


2) Strawberry mash

You'll need about 1 pound of strawberries, sugar and some evaporated milk.

Mash the strawberries up with a fork, sprinkle with sugar and add some evaporated milk. Eat it up!


3) Strawberry ice cream

16 oz fresh strawberries

1/3 cup granulated sugar

3 tbsp lemon juice

1 cup milk

2/3 cup granulated sugar

2 cups heavy cream

1 tsp vanilla extract


Wash and stem strawberries. Puree or slice them.

Mix strawberries with 1/3 cup granulated sugar and lemon juice. Place strawberries in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

Ice Cream Base Mix milk and sugar, allowing the sugar to dissolve.

Drain strawberries, adding juice to milk mixture. Set strawberries aside.

Stir in heavy cream and vanilla. Pour mixture into your ice cream maker.

Make ice cream according to your ice cream makers directions and add about half of the strawberries to the ice cream mix during the last 5 minute. Use the rest of the strawberries as topping.
