Exclamation Too many Strawberries!

I need to make something with the strawberries I have - normally we go through two 7lb.boxes per week, but we've been out of the house so much this week, I have about 10 pounds left.
They're looking like they need to be baked or cooked, since they've only got about a day or two before they go bad.

I need ideas! Thank you so much

I never made it either.....regular or freezer kind.

How about some sort of tart? Or get a couple bottles of champagne and some chocolate syrup.

Strawberry squash? Heat the strawberries in a double boiler or something else without direct heat. Pass through a jelly bag and add sugar (it's about a pound of sugar per pound of fruit) - I can look it up if you want. Or you could just make jelly.

You could also freeze them. They won't be any good for decorating or just eating but can be used for cooking - we freeze our home ones till we have enough for jam. But you could also use them for strawberry sauce, ice cream, jelly, cakes, brownies etc.

I wouldn't do that... I don't know anyone who has ever been happy with them afterwards. They will be waterlogged and mushy.

They will keep a few extra days in the fridge if you slice and sugar them, then you can make some biscuits and have shortcake.....

frozen one work very well for smoothies. fine for toppings on cake ice cream. make a super rhubarb and strawberry pie.

actually use for anything that doesn't require them. for decoration

do you have room for freezer jam? a good way to use a lot.
