To fit in with the season, it’s time for a recipe round-up of all things strawberry on The Kitchen Magpie! Today is all about the beautiful strawberry which has just come into season in my garden. Yes, I know I am behind of a lot of you southerners but here in Edmonton the long-awaited strawberry finally ripening in the garden is cause for celebration!

I m going to start with my unique twist on the strawberry pie, adding in some luscious blackberries! This was a fabulous taste combination for those who want to liven things up in the springtime. The two berries aren’t traditionally baked into pies yet marry in a decadent juicy sauce to make one of our favorite pies.

One of my most popular recipes, home-made Strawberry Rhubarb fruit leather. This recipes finds the classic spring pairing of strawberries and rhubarb outside of a pie for a change!

Strawberry yogurt scones. Divine.

Real strawberry shortcake,  which is traditionally made with a scone-like cake and not the fluffy cake that people have come to expect from Safeway shelves. Add lemon in those scones and the whipped cream and you’ve got a divinely tart and sweet dessert!
