Whether they are standing alone as a side or snack or adding a sweet touch to desserts, salads, and drinks, there are few foods as versatile as strawberries. Their flavor dominance spans breakfast, lunch, and dinner (and everything in-between) and we wouldn’t have it any other way! While there is no direct replacement for fresh strawberries, especially as a garnish, natural strawberry extract allows you to add authentic strawberry flavor to any recipe. Strawberry extract can be used to flavor cakes, cookies, ice cream, beverages, breads, and more. We rounded up some great strawberry recipes to help demonstrate how you too can use strawberry extract in your kitchen. Enjoy!
