Choosing the Best Berries for Strawberry Desserts
When you are making cakes, pies, popsicles, parfaits, and other treats that are meant to highlight the flavor of strawberries, you want to ensure they are fresh and ripe. Too ripe, and they are mushy and lose their nice red color. Underripe and they are firm and don’t have that wonderful, sweet aroma.
While you usually can tell when a strawberry is ripe by its color, that isn’t always the case since some varieties aren’t as bright and shiny. So you should go by what you feel and smell rather than what you see. Ripe strawberries give just a little when you press on them and they give off a sweet, floral aroma.
Once you’ve picked you berries, it’s time to get baking and making your favorite strawberry desserts!
