Salad Time

Strawberries work great in spinach salad. It’s a weird combination if you’re not interested in combining fruits and vegetables in this way. It sure is tasty, so definitely give it a try. Get a bag of baby spinach and a light vinaigrette dressing. Add thinly sliced strawberries and a handful of almost for a quick and yummy lunch. Just don’t add the salad dressing until you’re ready to eat.

Blueberry Muffins, Hold the Blueberries

Go to your bookshelf now and search those cookbooks. Find your favorite blueberry muffin recipe. Gather all the ingredients and simply substitute any cranberries you recently harvested. These two fruits are really interchangeable in muffin recipes with little or no other modifications made to the recipe.

Party Time!

If you’re having a party, you can take small blueberries or cranberries and freeze them inside of ice cubes. The end result is attractive and whimsical, and it’s a good way to use up an abundance of extra berries.

For a quick party dessert, layer berries between rows of pound cake and cool whip in a pretty trifle bowl. This type of dessert takes only minutes to prepare, and the end result is so stunning, everyone will think you spent all day in the kitchen.

Share the Wealth

If you have such an overabundance of cranberries, blueberries, or strawberries, then go ahead and share. Your friends, family, and coworkers will certainly appreciate you sharing your yummy berries with them. Just make sure you freeze any leftovers, and use them in future weeks in smoothies or fruit crisp.
