Too many strawberries.

Nyleve | Jun 21, 2012 11:52 AM

I miscalculated. Went out picking yesterday with my son and because there were two of us, we ended up with way more strawberries than I have any sensible use for. So far I've frozen a ton of them (washed, hulled and froze on a cookie sheet before packing into vacuum bags), made strawberry-rhubarb jam, made a quadruple recipe of strawberry cream scones (frozen to bake later) and eaten them until we've just about turned pink. I also made strawberry ice cream and packed up about 4 quarts to send home with my kids. Is there anything else I can do to use up the rest of them (probably about a 6-quart basket's worth)? NO more jam - I still have some strawberry freezer jam left from last year.

I know, I know - not a disaster, but I do hate to waste them. They're so beautiful.
