    ... finally, here up north! icon_biggrin.gif



    Scandinavian strawberries are soo sweet and luscious thanks to our short and intensive summers. On my strawberry agenda this year: eat too much of them as-is, freeze about 5 kilos, make a strawberry cream cake...



    ... and try this recipe: Strawberry Liqueur! We're already making Rhubarb Vodka, gooseberry liqueur, bilberry liqueur, apple liqueur and black & red currant liqueur... clearly we need a strawberry version too! icon_lol.gif

    I don't remember that I had strawberries when I was in Scandinavia but I have had them in Lithuania - I agree - that shorter growing season works some kind of miracle on the flavor of the strawberries!

    We are also having huge quantities of strawberries in markets, although they are nowhere near in flavor but you do luck out at times and have some really good ones. I've been buying them and cutting into quarters then freezing. I like to make smoothies with berries but the commercially frozen strawberries are either whole and really annoying to blend or are sweetened, which I do not want. So this way I make a supply to use for smoothies after the season is over. (I like to use some frozen fruit in smoothies to avoid watering them down with ice cubes).

    Absolutely agree about the frozen strawberries vs ice for smoothies, we do the same thing! icon_smile.gif

    Just found a new recipe I'll have to try with fresh strawberries soon:

    We made a lot of jelly candies last Christmas for gift-giving, they are so fun to make (and even more fun to eat)! That looks like a great, fresh summer version. yummy.gif
