strawberry soup

Hi everyone…I’m back!  It’s been a flurry of activity around here for the past month…end of senior year festivities followed by graduation and all the celebrations.  Whew!  It was exhausting, and I have sooo much to share.

All in due time, though…

Yesterday marked the first day of summer, and one of my favorite summertime activities is strawberry picking with my daughters.  We picked over 25 pounds of strawberries last week!  You know what that means…baking time!

While I enjoy baking breads and pies, this recipe for strawberry soup is a bit different.  A friend of mine served it at a dinner party several years ago, and she was kind enough to share the recipe with me.

  1. Beth, my mom always made strawberry soup for the kids birthdays. I still carry on that tradition for her. But our recipe is so different. I’ll try yours soon.
