We live near an Amish community. Which is excellent for many reasons including pie, farm fresh everything, and strawberries. I had the opportunity recently to buy a flat of strawberries. A flat is somewhere around 8-12 pounds as I understand it. I kept most of the first flat, using what I could before they became over-ripe. I made freezer jam, strawberry syrup for pancakes and waffles, we ate them in salads, on shortcake and straight out of the bowl. April 2013 040

The second flat I got was pretty ripe from the get-go, so I gave a bunch away and tried to use the rest quickly. My favorite way? With fresh whipped cream and coffee. There are strawberries down there somewhere :).
