Ah, strawberry season. It's always too short, but it's so sweet while it lasts. We decided to make the most of it and go strawberry picking last weekend.
Hello? Strawberries? Anyone there?
Yum! Eating as many strawberries as you possibly can is the best part about picking strawberries.
Don't they look lovely? We had a bit too much rain the week before, but they're still delicious.
The boys were pretty good actually, not stepping on the plants or berries and not picking the green ones.
This is what we came home with: 5kg (that's 11 lbs). We made strawberry cakes (yep, plural), pureed some with confectioner's sugar and froze them for eating with yogurt when the season is over, ate a lot of them and....
...made two batches of strawberry jam.
Of course I need more. I still haven't tried strawberry syrup and oh, there are so many cake recipes I want to try! Also, I need to stock up some more on jam and the frozen strawberry puree to get us through that bleak not-strawberry-season.
What's your favorite strawberry recipe?
