Fresh Picked Strawberries

Nothing says the start of summer more than picking fresh strawberries on a U-pick strawberry farm. As soon as Christene was able to walk, I took her with my best friend Linda to go strawberry picking at a local strawberry farm. With the arrival of our two other children Katie and Joey, the trip becomes an annual event.

With little ones, an outing to pick strawberries is a fun easy way to get the whole family outside. While everyone is relaxing you can make this delicious strawberry pie for dinner.  It does take some time to refrigerate so make it as soon as the berries are home. Strawberry pie will be gone in one night so be ready to make another one. Or better yet make two and you will be ready for the next night.

We love to eat strawberries fresh or served over strawberry shortcake, best yet eaten fresh in the field.  This no Jello Strawberry pie will soon be a family favorite as well. Part of the appeal is not only the fabulous fresh strawberry taste but the way the strawberries are arranged in the pie pan. Take the biggest strawberries cut them flat on the bottom and line them up in the pre-baked pie shell.

When I was a little girl we also picked strawberries in the field in June. My mother would include the addition of rhubarb from fresh rhubarb plants that were at the side of our house. Strawberry rhubarb pie was the pie my mother had grown up with and that she passed on to my sister and me.

When Jim and I were first married I used to make the strawberry rhubarb version but when the children came along this easier more decorative pie became the favorite.
