To remove the green stem and leaves of strawberries.
This sweet and easy treat is perfect during the summer months when the strawberries are deliciously ripe.—Marjorie Carey, Alamosa, Colorado
With its sugar-cone crust and layers of bananas and strawberry ice cream, this pretty pie never seems to last long...especially when our grandchildren visit. It's a favorite year-round, but we really enjoy it in summer, when fresh strawberries are plentiful.
When temperatures rise, cool things down with this ice-cold fruity slush. Keep some in the freezer for when guests pop in on a sultry evening.—Laura Reigel, Sheboygan, Wisconsin
