Strawberry Shortcake

The moment we’ve waited all-year long for has finally returned: welcome to strawberry season! Endless tables at the market stacked high with those blue or green pint containers of sweet, fresh strawberries are a defining quality of delicious late spring and early summer.

The first order of business at the start of the season is to savor fresh strawberries piece by piece, or maybe lightly macerated in sugar and spooned over some homemade whipped cream. Then, when you simply have a huge bounty after many strawberry-picking adventures, it’s time to get into the kitchen and put these sparkly recipes to work.

When it comes to picking the best carton of strawberries, remember to look for bright red berries, and the more fragrant they are the better. And if you’d don’t devour all those berries before getting home, it’s time to consider how you’ll store them. We found that the best way to store strawberries is soaking them in a vinegar solution, then thoroughly drying. And if you’re really swimming in a sea of berries, consider freezing some strawberries for later.

There are so many strawberry recipes to choose from, but don’t worry — we’re here to help save you time and make the decision a little easier by narrowing down the absolute best, most delicious, and easy strawberry recipes. We’ve got you covered with classic strawberry shortcake, strawberry lemonade, strawberry salads, and our favorite strawberry breakfasts. The list goes on. Whether you have just a small stash of berries or a whole lot, our list of 46 strawberry recipes you’ve got to make as soon as you can get your hands on some fresh berries.
