We have 2 punnets of strawberries and the kids are turning their noses up because they still have Easter eggs left. They really need using. Any suggestions for easy but tasty recipes for strawberries please

Melt the chocolate and dip the strawberries in?

Strawberry muffins
If you macerate them (add some sugar and balsamic vinegar to sliced or halved strawberries) they'll keep a bit longer in the fridge, and with ice cream or meringue.

Eton mess. Irresistible!

I'd make them into a jam or a coulis to preserve them

You can freeze them. They don't defrost perfectly, but they are fine for Eton mess or jam or something like that. I grow strawberries and always end up with a glut that I freeze.

Make jam/smoothies/put them in with breakfast cereal or porridge/freeze them into ice lollies/bake them into a cake.

I'd put them in a blender with other stuff and serve as a smoothie.
Although no strawberries would ever be left over in my house!

I would probably make a quick jam or sauce with them, or freeze them and then you can add them to smoothies or cereal/porridge smile

Nigella's strawberry and almond crumble is lovely. Recipe on her website.
