When i was younger, after further harvesting wasnt an option, the big strawberry farmers would open their fields to the public for a few days before plowing them under. My late brother went nuts with them one year, and made ten gallons of strawberry wine. I was too young to appreciate the stuff but i remember the wonderful smell wafting away from the fermenters...

Turn them into jam or freeze them.

Vlad_the_Inaner: Be thankful. You could be stuck eating extra potatoes, like the Belgians

The Belgians can turn potatoes into anything, such as waffles with cream. Don't feel sorry for the Belgians. Unless they run out of beer, but what are the odds of that? They can't have all their brewers making hand sanitizer or else there'd be more Belgian Vodka.

I've finished off the mangos but I think there are still lots of strawberries left in Canada, both frozen and fresh.

Fresh fruit is pretty much immune to the restaurant and bar markets.

And there's your solution to the UK Strawberry surplus:  Pimm's Number One Cup, Champagne and fruity girley drinks.

Well, normally there would be lots consumed at Wimbledon - both strawberries on their own, and Pimm's...

Not The Damned's best album, but still a solid choice

Haven't gotten any strawberries yet this year, but Oregon does run a bit behind the UK's harvest.

Live by the cash crop. Die by the cash crop.

When you eat a pound of strawberries your poop smells like strawberries.

I highly recommend it.

You can make wine and fruit brandy from them. Great stuff

I've been making pancakes for the wife and I... strawberry and banana pancakes, topped with pear slices, maple syrup and lightly sprinkled with powdered sugar (for presentation).
Then there were the strawberry and blueberry pancakes...
And the strawberry and apple pancakes...

Point is, I'm trying to incorporate as much fruit in our diet as possible and that's a stupid easy way to do it.
Gimme the farking strawberries, we will eat them
