I'm a sucker for strawberries.... Anything made with this.. I'd love it.
Hub's fren, Kenny, works in Camerons and he visits my hub almost monthly. Cameron's strawberries ripen on the plant itself and they can't last long, but are very fragrant and sometimes sweet (depends on the weather what!!). So, Kenny gets them as fresh as he can for me.. (He's got connections up there.... ) This time, he got me 2 kgs of huge red strawberries!!
see how much he got me!!!! 2 kgs of fat big strawberries
My head is thinking of strawberry jelly, red velvet cake (found a recipe that uses strawberry juice as the colouring), strawberry poke cake, and strawberry mirror cake (again!!!!!!)
I kept those ripe but not very ripe ones into the fridge and wait few days for them to ripen even more before I hull and chuck them into the freezer for future use.. and the very ripe ones... I plan to make them into Strawberry Jelly with my 2 nieces, Hannah and Jojo this weekend.
Just look at them.... Aren't they pretty??
A nice one on hubby's fingers
So, will be posting a strawberry jelly recipe soon.... next week, maybe??
