Best Strawberry Recipes | 10 Summer Berry Favorites
June has arrived, and with it, the first of one of our favorite summer fruits—strawberries! Sweet and juicy, strawberries are delicious plain or sliced onto cereal, but we also love them made into fresh strawberry preserves, baked into a tasty treat, or as the star ingredient in a cold, creamy dessert. Whether you pick your own or stock up at the market, we’ve got plenty of ways for you to use up summer’s first berries. That is, if you don’t eat them all first!
