If you’ve ever been strawberry-picking, you know how amazing strawberry fields smell. On a hot, early summer day, you could get drunk off the sweet scent. Sometimes you can mimic the experience by sticking your face into a carton of strawberries, but it’s not really recommended.
Strawberries are perfect as is, and their sour punch works equally well as part of a savory dish (tip: throw them in an arugula salad to add a perfect balance to the spicy greens). However, since strawberries are such amazing dessert subjects, you might want to just hold onto them to make a sweet treat. We're refreshing a collection of some of our favorite sweet strawberry recipes in honor of tonight's Strawberry Moon—the first time it's coincided with the summer solstice in nearly 50 years.
This article originally ran in June 2013. We're rerunning an updated version of it in honor of the Strawberry Moon.
