It’s strawberry season

Oh, the strawberries! They’re bursting forth with abandon again this year!!

Lots and lots of strawberries yet to ripen

Lots and lots of strawberries yet to ripen

According to the local newspaper, hot weather in the last week (after a relatively cool spring) could cause berries to ripen all at once. It seems every day now I’m coming home to at least 2 or 3 cups of perfectly red berries.

Strawberry harvest

All in a day’s picking!

How do you use or preserve fresh strawberries?

    How is your strawberry vinegar batch working out? I wish I could beam you some strawberries from our garden…I’m definitely going to try some of these recipes. 🙂
