Enjoying the Fruit Harvest

In the last few days I have picked so many strawberries and cherries! I have an abundance that I need to work out what to do with so they don’t go to waste. 
On Monday I used several of the strawberries to make refreshing smoothies. I will freeze some strawberries so that they can be put straight into a smoothie mixer for a lovely chilled drink.

Yesterday I made a cherry pie which used 900g of cherries! I can’t believe that I had this many cherries and still have a bowl full to use!

I am hoping to chop up most of the strawberries and freeze them so that they are preserved and can be used whenever we want. I will also pit the cherries and freeze them. I have a couple of small tubs of blackcurrants in the freezer that are ready and waiting for a yummy recipe!

I am very pleased with this year’s harvest and I am hoping to find lots of recipes to use up my home grown fruits.
