Our local strawberry farm opened last week, and you better believe I was there during the opening hour on opening day. I picked two baskets before heading in to work, and the next morning went back to pick some more.
So far, we’ve been eating strawberries for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Still on the menu for this week: waffles with strawberry maple syrup.
I love this time of year.
Have you had many strawberries yet this year? How do you like to eat them? Does anyone else have a bowl of whip cream in the fridge? Who else has gone picking? Are you growing your own berries?
These look so good! I just clean them and keep them in the frig for “snackage”. (and freeze the extras for smoothies and strawberry cake!
All of ours have been consumed by “snackage” so far with none left for freezing. Strawberry jam is my absolute favourite, so if I preserve any berries this is how I’d do it!
Jam! What a great idea. I’ve never made any myself, but used to watch my mom and grandma make it. Enjoy those lovely berries!! paula ♥
Ours are just starting to open and sell berries too – I hope to get a pile of them picked this weekend for jam making.
Homemade strawberry jam… mmmmmm…
My BF’s parents picked up some for us and we froze half and I made half into strawberry shortcake with homemade whipped cream! I think I added too much vanilla because it wasn’t “fluffy” whipped cream it was more “pudding-like” ??? But that of course did NOT stop me from eating it!
We have a fairly nice sized garden, but next year we are adding on to start a strawberry patch!
I don’t add anything to my whipped cream. Matt would like it to be a little sweeter, but, honestly, I love it as is. I can eat it with a spoon (perhaps I shouldn’t be revealing this). I cannot handle the “edible oil product” that comes in a can.
Actually, real whipped cream is not that unhealthy, they are learning. Those strawberries look incredibly luscious! Too bad it is now October…
They were luscious. Fortunately, jam is equally luscious in October.
Did you manage to get the jam made?
Not homemade, but we had some very good strawberry jam from a local organic farm. Great summer memories in a jar.
