Strawberries - what do you do with them?

I bought a pound of gorgeous, organic strawberries and 1/2 litre of organic, 40% whipping cream. I will probably just serve the strawberries with whipped cream tonight.

What are your favourite ways to serve fresh strawberries?

With whipped cream & angel food cake :D

I also like making strawberry cheesecake muffins - I make regular strawberry muffins, fill the muffin tins 1/2 full, put a small cube of cream cheese in each one, then top with the remaining batter

We love bruschetta it's so yummy. just cut up or crush clean berries with a tater masher or even a fork, add a little sugar and a drizzle of water or lemon juice, then top the toasted sliced bread with the mashed berries now sprinkle with sugar then put the bread and berries under the broiler and carmelize the sugar. Then eat with a nice cold drink sparkling wine or ice tea and enjoy.

Try preserves. I just defrosted some of the best strawberry preserves, cleaning out the freezer, that I've made in ages. These are from DH's strawb overbuying in May. May have to (shudder, I despise baking) bake a cake or some muffins, there's way too much to eat. They're sloppy, so am also thinking about boiling them down again and making jam, maybe adding some pectin.

If not strawberry shortcake, then I just eat them. They never make it to the freezer.

They really are good dipped in chocolate. Especially dark chocolate.

Oh, the dark chocolate Philly cream cheese would be good too!

I like to make Bisquick shortcake, and serve it hot with cold mascerated strawberries and whipped cream.

I usually eat them plain but I rarely turn down a dessert with strawberries. I'm not a baker myself!
