Strawberry Recipes

These Strawberry Recipes are gathered together to honor this amazing fruit. We can also celebrate National Strawberry Day together each year! A while back, to celebrate strawberries at our Honey House, we purchased strawberry plants and shared them with our customers. We invited them to plant the strawberry in a location where they could enjoy the plant all summer long.

We also encouraged everyone to visit our blog to see and try all the new strawberry and honey recipes.  Part of our job is to inspire each and every one of you to “bee inspired” to feed the bees. It’s so simple.

This Strawberry Recipes feature our favorite summer fruit

The limited availability of strawberries from farm stands and fields makes them a very special treat. Strawberries grow wild on our Chesterhaven Beach Farm; they fill the fields in June and provide local wildlife a bite to eat. Rabbits and turtles are huge strawberry fans, and bees readily pollinate the flowers.

All of the recipes featured in this strawberry roundup include our Eastern Shore Honey available online and in-store at our Owings Mills Honey House.

Always buy organic

Homegrown strawberries are simply better than store bought-not only are they cheaper, but they can be free from pesticides if you grow them organically, and now that strawberry season is upon us it’s the perfect time to plant your own crop.  Due to the fact that strawberries grow so close to the ground, and don’t have a “thick skin,” they are often plagued by fungal disease and pests. In conventional farming, the farmer uses strong pesticides to yield predictable results. However, in organic farming, crop rotation may be the answer to avoiding pesticides.

In every event, we avoid the conventionally grown strawberries and we hope you will too. Strawberries are one of the ubiquitous “dirty dozen” fruits, covered in pesticide residue, that cannot easily be removed by washing them.
