Still trying to find a way to use up those mushy strawberries? Here are five ways you can try.
We have just bidden adieu to the winter months, and with that the season of strawberries has also gotten over. The delicious, aromatic and nutritious fruit makes its way into our fridge during winters and stays in our hearts forever. As we have already welcomed the spring season, strawberry vendors are trying their best to clear out their stock. We are now eager to relish the season’s residue produce until next year.

However, they eventually find their place only in the trash can. So, to save them from this, we bring you five ways to use overripe strawberries.
