It is no secret that one of the most delightful ways to indulge in fresh strawberries is by incorporating them into fresh strawberry dessert recipes.  Very few things can compare to picking your berries right off the bushel and making a sweet and sultry dessert all in the same day!  It truly is treat for all to enjoy.

What makes the strawberry so popular is that there are virtually thousands of combinations in which to use them - such as for a strawberry fluff dessert or the classic strawberry whip cream jello dessert.  These are just a couple of my personal favorites!

Before you get started, it is important to get a general idea of how many berries you will need to accommodate your fresh strawberry dessert recipes - the last thing you want to do is have a refrigerator full of berries and not enough time to eat them all!  Here are some helpful tips that I've learned along the way when it comes to preparing desserts with strawberries as your main ingredient.

  • Most standard 9 inch pies require approximately 1 1/2 to 2 quarts of fresh berries.  You can obviously increase or decrease this slightly depending on your berry desires.
  • You will often run into recipes that call for a frozen variety.  In this case, replace the standard 20 oz package of frozen for roughly 2 cups of fresh, preferably sliced.
  • If you're not equipped enough to grown your own fresh berries, be sure to shop for those which are beautifully bright red with green, leafy tops.
  • Unlike their berry cousins, they do not continue ripening once picked - therefor stay away from buying or picking them that are still pinkish white as they will not mature once plucked from the bushel.
  • Lastly, avoid washing them or removing the leaves until you are ready to use them!  Always use air tight containers and try to cook with them as soon as possible once they are picked.  The sooner the better!

Hopefully these tips will ensure that your fresh strawberry dessert recipes are a hit amongst your friends and loved ones.  Strawberries are the jewel of the garden and should be enjoyed as fresh as possible.  1 cup only contains roughly 50 calories - so stop looking for miracle dessert alternatives and start enjoying the sweet tongue-pleasing flavors of strawberries all year round!

Strawberries have been my favorite fruit since I was a child. Using them to make Fresh Strawberry Dessert Recipes is one of my most popular mediums amongst friends and family.
