Jim in Georgia

By Jim Chatman

The best strawberries I've ever had grow in a small alpine meadow on the Aufderheide Highway which roughly parallels the Oregon Cascade Range on the west. There's a re-creation of an alpine pioneer cabin built by the USFS in the meadow and a small trout filled stream behind. The meadow is just a couple miles north of the Presidents Grove; a stand of enormous old-growth trees. I used to drive the highway from beginning to end, a short 20 miles or so, and stop by the meadow to pick late spring/earlysummer strawberries, huckleberries, red huckleberries, and red caps. I'd sit and enjoy the wild berries on the banks of the stream and watch the small trout play and feed on meadow insects that dropped in.

Strawberry Shortcake

By Theresa Lapinsk...

Strawberry shortcake is a big favorite in our house. It has to be the biscuit type, not sponge cake, and topped with real whipping cream. Yum! Also, ripe, fresh picked, plain strawberries are great, too!

I love them dipped in dark chocolate and drizzled with white chocolate.

Strawberries in a pie

By Craig King

I make a strawberry-rhubarb pie that is quite good. Rhubarb is also available this time of year and the two ingredients together are a wonderful flavor combination.

I like to wrape strawberries in crepes, top with whipped cream, cover with maple sytup


By Sandra York

I love waffles with strawberries and cool whip on top. It is soooo good.


By Kristin Umstead

I like them in pies, but I also like them in a bowl with some milk and little bit of sugar if they are too tart.

I really don't understand how these places that let you come and pick your own make any money...I love coming out of the field with a bucket of berries and red all over my lips and mouth..

Do the research on how many 'mini' bugs are on them... & It might slow down your eating them before being washed... It did me... LOL

My favorite way is to dip them in sour cream, then brown sugar! Mouth watering! Also works with grapes.

My favorite way to eat Strawberries is to put them in a big bowl and mash them a little with a potato masher. Add a little sugar if needed and then pour them over crumbled pie crust.

In smoothies; lightly heated and so, saucy, then on ice cream, in no-fat yogurt. And it's almost time to start picking!
