Strawberries and a Recipe

I picked so many strawberries in our patch the other day.  I was so excited to see red, ripe strawberries!  Usually the birds get to them before I do.  While I continued to pick, I realized that I had so many, that I could actually find a recipe, so I looked in my great grandmothers cookbook.  To my surprise and disappointment, I could not find any recipe other than strawberry shortcake, which of course would have been great, but I was looking for something different.  I did come across a recipe for a “Rhubarb Upside Down Pudding”, and thought it might be interesting to replace the rhubarb with strawberries.  So I took to cleaning and removing stems, and set out to do my work.

And I came out with a very delicious recipe that turned out more like a crisp than a pudding, but so very delicious, that I thought I would share it with all of you.  What would make this even more delicious would be pairing this crisp with fresh homemade ice cream.
