During one of my recent trips to the grocery store, strawberries were $1.59/lb. That’s my target price, so I purchased a couple of pounds for the kids to snack on and to use in one of my favorite seasonal salads.

Are you looking for a thrifty strawberry recipe? Look no further. I’ll tell you how to save money on strawberries, handle them, and get you started with a list of easy and thrifty strawberry recipes.
