Thanks for the ideas. Sushi I actually totally blanked that idea so it's good you mentioned it. Kyles that salad sounds so good. As soon as I get to try it I will let you know what I think.
I just joined this group but I think I really like it. Everyone seems so nice and helpful.
On the rare occasion I manage to get home with any wild strawberries, I love just piling them high in a basic sweet-pastry tart crust, sometimes with a layer of custard on the bottom, and then a very basic glaze of thinned, strained strawberry jam. A dollop of whipped cream - yum.
With regular strawberries, try pouring balsamic vinegar and sugar over them - delicious. Wild strawberries don't need any help . . .
Crushyour strawberries in a large bowl sugar to taste and let the berries sit for about 30 minutes.
I then layer crust on the bottom next a layer of berries then crust then berries etc makeing 3 layers with a generous portion of berries on top. When I am ready to serve I cut equal portions and top with whipped cream with 1 Whole strawberry with stem on top. Sometimes I dip the strawberry in chocolat.
