Last year I went strawberry picking with my parents, and it was beyond disappointing. The weather, our timing, everything about the experience was just not great. Which was a huge bummer, because strawberry picking is one of the highlights of my year. Today, however, my favorite strawberry field redeemed itself and yielded these GORGEOUS strawberries. These will just be for eating, and I think JGL and I are going to go back Sunday to grab a whole lot more for canning: jams, jellies and salsa!
But in the meantime, I’m happy spending my day off making one of my all time favorite treats: Strawberry Shortcakes!
