With spring popping up all around us, strawberry season isn’t far behind — traditionally strawberry season runs from June to August, however new farming techniques have lengthened the season from April through December. source
Fresh juicy strawberries are one of my favorite fruits. The bright red jewel like berries evoke memories of hot summer days, sticky fingers, red stained mouths and happiness. There’s just something about strawberries.
Whenever I buy pints of strawberries, whether from a farmer’s market or my local grocery, I buy them in pairs … one to eat straight from the pint, and another for use in some of our family’s favorite strawberry dishes.
I don’t think there’s any wrong way to eat strawberries, and while scouring some of my favorite food blogs to gather the most delicious strawberry recipes to share — I discovered new dishes and ways to cook and serve strawberries that has me wanting to rush right out and buy pint upon pint of strawberries and try each and every recipe. From Strawberry Basil Lemonade to Chocolate Covered Strawberry Brownies to Strawberry Lemonade Muffins. I foresee lots of bright red berries and delicious strawberry themed treats in our future!
