Strawberries

They are not facing the same scarcity as asparagus this year, despite the bad weather.

Strawberries

Had some lovely Irish ones last week - finally it felt like summer. I do love strawberries, but never seem to do anything with them apart from eat them 'as is'. The flavour seems to change when you use them as an ingredient, but I could be convinced otherwise, I suppose :)

Strawberry county

I grew up in Co Wexford , a county that is famous for strawberries.
My Grandad grew strawberries for one of the jam companies , we could smell the fruit in the air when they were ripe.
I believe they still have a strawberry fair in the county.
The fruit used to taste oh so delicious.
I hate the taste of the strawberries that are imported , they are hard , & tasteless.

Strawberries

Anastasia, it's the tastelessness I really object to. Personally I don't mind when they're quite firm.

We were just discussing Srtawberries over in the Gardening section with Honey and Expat B - http://www.deliaonline.com/Community/forum.html?forum_action=5&forum_forumid=4&forum_threadid=10675

Looks like it could be a very good year for outdoor grown strawberries, so keep an eye open for UK grown. And for self picking sites.

By the way, did we just see Noreen at work on a Sunday morning?

Strawberries

These are one of my favourite fruits. Apparently, according to what I've read in the Press, the weather hasn't spoiled the crops. I bought UK ones in Waitrose this week and they were delicious. You can keep the foreign ones as far as I'm concerned.

I got some gorgeous Elsanta english ones at the weekend and did them as part of a finger buffet, half dipped in Montezuma chocolate. They went down a treat.

Strawberries

I absolutely hate the big hard, white in the middle (often American) strawberries that appear early in the shops, but here in SW France we have a variety called Garriguette which are wonderful - small, dark red all the way through, sweet and almost like wild strawberries - impossible to resist!!
