In My Kitchen, July 2015

Homegrown strawberries
Homegrown strawberries

In my kitchen this month is an over-abundance of homegrown strawberries. We planted out all of the runners last year, and now we’re running out of neighbours to unload strawberries on. One neighbour actually said, No, we don’t eat fruit. We’ve frozen so many that we’ve hardly any room for meat, never mind freezing bread! I think we’ll be more choosey about how many runners we plant out this autumn.

So, what’s happening in your kitchen? If you’d like to join in on In My Kitchen this month, just pop over Celia’s Fig Jam and Lime Cordial blog for details, and jump into kitchen fun.

      Thanks, Mandy, and you, too!

  3. Strawberries are such a treat. They look so beautiful en masse too.

      And so yummy with some milk and a tough of sugar, too.

    Trade you some of my “too much salmon” for some of your “too many strawberries”, maybe a joint picnic? Well, it sounds good until I think of the freight charges.

      I could do with some good alder-smoked salmon!

    The strawberries look delicious! Very plump and flavoursome xxx

      And they are delicious! The dog discovered today that they’re tasty also. Now I need to protect them from her appetite.

    Your strawberries look great. There is always a glut mid summer but in winter you dream of that summer glut. I have just pulled out all my tomato plants. The first time I have to go and buy tomatoes is going to break my heart. I am sure your strawberries will freeze well. Perfect for smoothies.

    How lovely of you to share your bounty! Sounds like you have enough to run a stall at the markets! Cheers, Kirsty

      Splendid idea!

  8. WOW! I love strawberries and can never seem to get enough of them! I wonder if someone near you has excess of what they have grown and perhaps you can swap?
    Thanks for this month’s kitchen view also!

      People keep their gardens tidy around here, but no one seems to grow anything edible. Odd!

    I grew alpine strawberries for about 3 years and took them out this year for the opposite reason. They seemed to take far too much space for the few fruit we got. How wonderful to have so many. How about making cordial? GG

    1. Misky says:

      Excellent idea. Do you have a recipe on your blog?

  10. i think it’s a rather lovely photo. and i am envious of all your strawbs! we can’t plant out anything due to rabid bush turkeys.:) at least you can make your own strawb vinegar and cordial and ice cream and ….

      I must Google bush turkey. Sounds fascinating!
