So far I've managed to make strawberry sauce, from the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving, which is delicious. I made it to add to plain yogurt, but I'm going to have a hard time not putting it on top of anything it could possibly go with. (That was fun--I chose an 85 degree day in my non-air conditioned house to can something that requires constant stirring of a boiling pot for fifteen minutes.) And I made a cold-process strawberry shrub. (Thankfully, no stove required!) Shrubs are amazing and so easy to make. I highly recommend mixing one up. I normally make non-alcoholic drinks with shrubs by mixing with sparkling water, but I'm going to try some cocktails with this batch. I've also frozen a bunch of strawberries for later use, but I still haven't quite figured out what I'm going to do with the rest that are in my fridge. I was originally planning some strawberry rhubarb jam (with our own out-of-control rhubarb,) but I haven't gotten around to that yet. Maybe today.
