In the great state of Georgia, strawberry season can stretch from late April to July 4, and did you know, they’re the first fruit to ripen each spring?
Growing up, after a hearty dinner, my mom would always serve freshly baked pound cake on her blue and white china. The cake was served with a heaping pillowy dollop of sweetened whipped cream and a pile of macerated strawberries. I never had a chance not to love them.
I can’t wait to visit my local farmers market this season to bring home a gallon-sized bucket full of these red-ripened vibrant gems.
