The sweetest thing about the arrival of strawberry season is getting the fam out on the farm and into the spring sunshine to pick your own. The air filled with the sweet fragrance of those rich red berries. That first blissful bite bursting on your tongue.
If you and your little pickers can resist gorging yourselves before getting them home, you’ll probably want to savour your first dish of the season au naturel, with a generous dollop of freshly whipped cream with your butterfly whisk. Then get stuck into some juicy recipe inspo from our Cookidoo® top picks below.
How to store your strawbs
Lush, juicy strawberries are high in water content making them prone to going mushy. Just as one bad apple can spoil the bunch, one mouldy strawberry will cause the rest of the berries to spoil faster too. Some swear by giving the strawberries a quick wash in a vinegar solution. Storing them in an airtight container also helps. Or better still, Vac-u-Seal them to keep them fresher for longer in your fridge or freezer.
