I generally eat them on their own, but really love them far more with thickened cream.
I do not however buy cream all that often, not because of weight issues but because of cholesterol issues!
There is nothing nicer than cut up strawberries, soaked in the cream for a few hours, and even lovelier with a bit of sugar on top which brings out some "sauce" from the strawberries....
Ice cream is also good with it, but I no longer eat that ever due to sugar content!
I sound like a health nut.......(am not really)

Yesssssss. . .I can eat lovely fat cream. *slurp* . . .but you are totally right about the taste of strawberries these days. Such a shame.
by Rice
Rice, no fruits are nice these days, because they are picked before they have a chance to ripen on the tree/bush. Then thrown into cool store for months and put on supermarket shelves to supposedly ripen, ha ha. to soften and go off more like. It is a lucky person who has, or knows someone who has, an established fruit tree, or grows tomatoes

Well back in the day when lactose didn't do horrible things to me I used to adore strawberries with cream and icecream.
Now I love them as a treat au natural and not often
You can buy in the supermarkets Lactose-Free Cream, and it is wonderful :)

To me Strawberries are lovely to look at on food...But no way taste as they use too.
Yes. I mostly eat my fruit raw. Straight out of the punnet. However I have the same problem as some of you in that strawberries from the shop no longer taste sweet. In most cases they have little taste at all. I rarely buy strawberries now, but I will buy them direct from the farmer, and they are much sweeter and juicier.

I love strawberries and eat them any way. I cut them for on my breakfast cereal alone or with other fruit. I love them with Greek yoghurt. I don't eat ice cream these days but I do enjoy them on ice cream. One of my favourite cakes is a sponge with fresh cream and strawberries but I haven't had it for years. I enjoy strawberries by themselves and when I grew them would often pick and eat one on my way past. I feel like they have something in them that makes me feel good.
As most of you have said strawberries no longer have much flavour, however I started buying punnets again to support the farmers in sight of the needle debacle! I slice them up and sugar them and have forgotten the cream topping but I have some frozen custard so will try that next time YUM!
I did the same, brigi, to help the farmers but I honestly think I should get a little half barrel and grow my own. . . maybe one of the old varieties which are small and taste so sweet.

Totally agree with the majority that strawberries nowadays lack the sweetness of yester year. I eat them on their own mostly but if they are hard, a sprinkle of sugar helps break that down. When they are looking a bit drab, I cut them in half or quarters and add them to my banana bread.
I always have them au naturel.I never put them in the fridge but keep them in a cool dark place & they taste pretty good. If kept in the fridge strawberries loose their taste. Maybe keep them in the fridge but put them out at room temp several hrs before consuming them.
Yes, love them They are especially good as my dessert on my fast days, as they have very low calories. On 'normal' days I love them with custard or ice cream. And I agree with Helya about eating them at room temperature - they taste much better then when they're straight from the fridge.
We just eat a strawberry on our cereal every single day!
by Miro
On their own, because I am on a permanent diet, but I prefer raspberries. If they are not nice berries then I
like whipped cream, or canned cream
No. One is never enough!
YES YES YES. And so do the kids. During strawberry season I usually buy a couple of punnets every week and they get devoured. Pretty much always on their own (occasionally with yoghurt).
On their own.
