Bring out the best of fresh strawberries with this simple, healthy pie: It takes only 3 simple ingredients and about 15 minutes. ~ by Serena Ball, MS, RD
Would you like to buy a strawberry farm?
I know of one for sale: George’s Berry Patch outside tiny Litchfield, IL
Relish the thought! You could have this Fresh Strawberry Glace Pie for breakfast every morning of strawberry season.
You’d have to eat dessert a couple times a day to taste all the strawberry desserts at their freshest: Fresh Strawberry Cupcakes, and Strawberries and Cream Crunch Parfaits

Believe me, I really thought this through….as I picked 21 pounds at George’s Berry Patch on Tuesday. I’d have four farm workers right off the bat (my four kids) – and they’d grow up knowing that a hard YEAR of work would result in a few weeks of all the sweet, red, juicy fruit they could pick. We would put up a cute sign: “Ball’s U-Pick Sweetest Strawberries Around.” And if you or I don’t buy this strawberry farm and keep it as a glorious U-Pick, I might soon be driving by “Strawberry Fields Housing Development”…and sighing.
I think the auction is June 28. Want to out-bid me?
Until then, I’ll make a few more of these simple (healthy!) pies that highlight the super sweet fresh berries…and if you don’t wait for it to set (which we didn’t) you can make it in about 15 minutes and eat it right then and there.
Would you ever buy a farm? I probably won’t. Would you ever pick 21 pounds of berries?
