0613 Strawberry Invasion

Strawberry's Eye View

I went berry-picking this morning.

Berries Everywhere!

And I may have been overly enthusiastic.

Two Perfect Berries

Because now we have twenty pounds of strawberries, approximately 1/3 of which are pictured below.

Tray 1/2

What the hell am I going to do with twenty pounds of strawberries? Answer: jam. And a lot of it. Also gelato. Also a lot of berry-eating out of hand, as these berries are as sweet as candy.

I would tell you about the gelato, but I don’t want to make you jealous.  You should probably just make some yourself, though I’d recommend reducing the quantities by a third or you’ll run the risk of overflowing your food processor and/or your ice cream maker.  Don’t have either of those?  This recipe uses them, but doesn’t require them, so now you have no excuse.  NO EXCUSE, hear me?

  1. I’m always in favor of using strawberries for gelato. 🙂 The quantities in my recipe (which you linked to) fit in my ice cream maker – a Cuisinart – but yeah, it may depend on the kind of ice cream maker you have whether it would overflow. And I don’t use a food processor, actually, I just use my blender. Works a treat, & is easier to clean.
