Keep your eyes peeled for some super low prices on strawberries continuing through the first weeks of June. It’s a great time to stock up and freeze the extra for making yummy desserts or freezer jam. A few days ago, my daughter and her friend Coan joined me in the kitchen to make this easy delicious treat.
4 c. strawberries, cleaned and sliced
1 c. orange juice
1 c. water
1/2 c. sugar
Combine orange juice, water and sugar in a saucepan and cook until boiling, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and cook for 2-3 minutes until sugar dissolves.
Add sliced strawberries and continue to cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and use a mixer or blender to puree until strawberries are thoroughly combined.
Allow to cool, and pour into a shallow pan. Place in freezer for 3-6 hours. Serve.
This will be a hit with your strawberry lovers. It’s an easy staycation activity to get the kids involved in the kitchen
