I found a recipe for a different strawberry cake that I would like to try. It calls for strawberry extract (in addition to strawberry puree) and I've never used that before.
Does anyone have any recommendations as to a good brand of strawberry extract? From my cursory research, it seems like there is a wide variety of brands both imitation and "natural" (whatever that means.) I thought I also read somewhere that depending on the brand, strawberry extract can emit a chemical/bitter taste, which of course I would like to avoid. While the imitation extracts seem to be cheapest, if the quality isn't great then that's not a good option.
I would appreciate any input anyone might have on this. Thanks!
I highly recommend the strawberry extract from Olivenation.com It's not chemical or bitter at all. I purchase all of my extracts and flavorings from them and I think they're superior to others. They ship quickly, too.

i use strawberry jello and fresh strawberries in mine
i mean the jello powder into the mixture
Oh I am not a huge fan of extracts but especially with berries I find they all taste very artificial. Can you not use real strawberries? But that wad not your question anyway so...just my opinion.
