I've heard about the apple juice trick but never tried it. I just don't like most fruit juices and I especially loath apple juice unless it's pretty hard.
Another thing to do with excess strawberries is to make fruit leather (if you like that kind of thing) or dehydrate them. They make a nice addition to muesli or trail mix in that form or just as a snack.
(Pro-tip: don't try to rehydrate them. This method is a one-way street.)
I was asking because I overdid it buying strawberries. I have about 6 pounds here. We've had fresh strawberries mixed with a little cool whip (SR loves it) and fresh blueberries every night. Tomorrow I'm making waffles with strawberries cut into the batter. They'll be covered with what else, fresh strawberries. :D
I'm afraid SR will rebel with the excessive amount of strawberries. He's been good about drinking all the fresh orange juice I've been making from the orange tree in the back yard. The tree produces Valencia juice oranges. I have a small electric juicer. So far this season I've made almost 4 gallons of orange juice. No matter what happens, we'll be in juice for some time to come. :p
The smaller tree produces blood oranges, which are delicious eating oranges. Sadly there were only about 10 on the entire tree. I'd rather have more of them than all those juice oranges.
