15 Best Ways to Use Up Overripe Fruit

Overripe fruit is sweeter than perfectly ripe or unripe fruit, and you can capitalize on that. The trick is to use that sweetness but disguise the texture. Sometimes it's by blending, other times by mashing. This chunky strawberry sauce is an easy four-ingredient sauce that only takes 10 minutes to throw together. You can use it on your toast, oatmeal, yogurt, ice cream, cakes, in crepes with ricotta — whatever. Go strawberry wild. This would be especially delicious on angel food cake as well as devil's food cake, no?
