Easy Fresh Strawberry Pie

Start preparing this easy fresh strawberry pie by selecting the very best berries.

Even at the height of the season, you can inadvertently buy a bad box of berries. While you can't know how long it took the berries to get from field to grocery shelf, or what shipping conditions were like, you can follow a few easy rules of thumb to insure you pick the best strawberries for your recipe.

Here are a few guidelines to follow when making your selection.

Look for plump, firm, dry berries with strong color. Remember that strawberries don't ripen after they're picked. Pick only the reddest, firmest berries. Gently shake the box. The berries should move freely; if they stick to each other, rot has begun to set in, and there may be a moldy berry hidden down in the bunch.

Check the underside of the basket; if there are juice stains...pick another container. One that is dry and free of any stains.

Once you've made your choice, all you have to decide on is which recipe to prepare. Below you'll find some of our suggestions.
