Cooking – The Simplicity of the Strawberry

Strawberries are simple to use and can often be used with little preparation. Once thoroughly cleaned strawberries may be served raw as a garnish, a breakfast topping, a dessert, or a beverage decoration; let your imagination lead the way. Here are some ideas to get you started.

  • Using sliced strawberries as a covering; on cereal, French toast, pancakes, and waffles is flavorful, nutritious, and pleasing to the eye. A quick and easy to prepare strawberry sauce provides a different feel with all the benefits of sliced strawberries.
  • Decorating a beverage can be as simple as floating whole or sliced strawberries in any cool beverage you are serving in a punch bowl or clear glass.
  • Lightly sauced — with medium to large piece remaining — strawberries on Angel Food cake have long been a favorite with my family, especially with a small helping of vanilla or strawberry ice cream on the side as a garnish.
