First Strawberries of the season

Yeh! Strawberry season again.

We headed down to our favourite strawberry grower in Cheddar. Bit of a family tradition. I am making jam tonight.

Lots and lots of lovely strawberry jam (recipe).

I think some of them are so big that they may just fill a jar all by themselves.

The children would have happily eaten nothing but strawberries all day.

I love strawberries!

    Oh, boy…do they look tasty! We love to make strawberry jam. Tastes like sunshine itself.

    Wow! Those are big berries! I always have thoughts of making jam, but somehow we always eat all the strawberries in strawberry shortcake before I ever get around to it :).

      I’m not sure there is a best way to eat strawberries. Strawberry shortcake sounds really good to me. What a versatile little fruit! The tray is full of misshapen strawberries which would never have made it to the shops. Some even have legs!

    Those strawberries look delicious. I’m thinking of warm weather but I’ll just have to ride out winter first. 🙂

      Strawberries always taste better in season. Hope you find it worth waiting.

      These are the odd shaped strawberries, which taste yummy, but are not the classic strawberry shape. We don’t mind.
