I absolutely ADORE fresh strawberries!!! I have NEVER bought frozen berries,as they come from all different countries .I sometimes have added strawberries to a crumble dessert ,and I have made jam with them too, but I prefer them cold,fresh and dipped in Nutella!!! YUM!!!Otherwise I simply chop them up,add the pulp of several Panama Passion-fruits which I have growing in my North Qld garden, and stir through a tiny amount of brown sugar!!! I can really pig out on strawberries,especially during the long winter-through-Spring Qld season!!! They were excellent quality this year,plentiful and extremely cheap!!! As soon as the season ended though,they quadrupled in price!!
No I don't cook with them, I just have them on my home made pancakes & we have them on our cereal every other morning. I'm writing this in Jan '17, & the Aldi strawberries have been excellent for the last 3/4 months at least. We find the bigger ones have more taste than the little ones, even though of cause theres not so many of them in the 'box'
