Strawberries from California

They were not from our garden or even some local farmer. In Oregon, the advice is not to plant strawberries until May to be sure that Jack Frost will not get them. But these looked so good when we were in a locally owned supermarket last week that we could not resist them. The price was great too, at $5.00 for two one pound boxes. We only got one, so it was even better. They are not the greatest ever, but they are ripe and sweet, though a little tough. I have enjoyed them on my cereal this week.

I am eager for berry season to begin! I'm hoping we'll be able to get some nice locally grown berries this year, and get a better flavour than the commercially packed ones we buy at the grocery store. As you say, I enjoy them but they aren't quite the same!

When I get some less than delicious strawberries I slice them up and put them in hot water with some sugar and let them sit for a few minutes. I then rinse them off and there delicious because they soak up just a bit of sugar and release some of their own.
