Berryfull – Summer Day 13

Mmmmmmm! Fresh strawberries. I am addicted to them. The local strawberry season for this area is approximately Father’s Day to the 4th of July. I have to get them while I can. July usually begins raspberry season in my back yard. My raspberries are not super-bountiful but my bushes tend to produce a good sized handful per day for a couple weeks. That is just enough. Raspberries have a tendency to go soft and squishy rather quickly, and I prefer not to refrigerate if I can get away with it in order to preserve the really fresh flavor.

While the berries are in season, I have the tendency to pop them in my mouth each time I pass through the kitchen. On one of my pass-throughs last night, I discovered this:

A mutant! LOL!

The mutant tasted just as good as the rest of them. 😉

  3. Oh the Strawberries are so late this year year in Nova Scotia. The first few pickings are in the stores but I’m waiting to go to a “pick your own” place and GORGE on ’em. I think the “mutant” ones taste best !
