The house in Hooterville is just a hop, skip and a jump from the city that is known as “The Winter Strawberry Capital of the World.”
In fact, “Hooterville” has its share of strawberry fields too. There is even a large one that runs along the west side of our property.
The recent freezing temperatures we experienced earlier this month didn’t seem to negatively impact the berries too much because they are plentiful as well as exceptionally plump and sweet.
Oh and they smell heavenly!
What a wonderful treat it is to be able to go right down the street to one of the roadside vegetable stands to get strawberries fresh out of the fields rather than having to buy them in the grocery store!
With all of the fresh strawberries available to me now, I think I need to start looking for new ways to use these luscious berries beyond the typical strawberry shortcake.
Have you got any good recipes using fresh strawberries you would like to share?
