Comments

Delicious and simple, kids love it!  It actually reminds me of the strawberries topping served at restaurants...I bet it would be good warmed up as a replacement for maple syrup on pancakes or waffles!  

For a make-ahead summer treat, prepare Strawberry Swirl and freeze in a zip-lock bag.  When ready to serve, partially thaw in the bag, then scoop into glasses or cups.  Two cups of frozen whole strawberries, still a little icy rather than thawed, and two cups apple juice can be processed in a homestyle blender.  The mixture fits in a 1 quart bag.  This really works!  I served 250 at a school carnival last week!
