Strawberry Puree



Welcome to strawberry season!!  This week is all about inspiring ideas on what can be done with a simple pint of strawberries. We get ours from Jones Orchard, a local, well known establishment. They even let you out into their strawberry fields and pick your own, what a treat!! Not only do I know where they come from but they were hand picked by me, it just doesn't get any better than that.  Today, we whip up a batch of puree, let it refrigerate overnight and tomorrow we will move on to making that BBQ sauce I mentioned, YUM...can't wait!!

Ingredients:
1 pint strawberries
1/4 cup honey

Toss into a food processor or blender for 1 minute. Then strain in a fine mesh strainer, this will get out all the seeds and leave you with a much smoother consistency.

Makes approximately 1 3/4 cup puree
