Don’t let these strawberries fool you at market.
They are UGLY. They are tiny and cracked. Some are knobby and mis-shapen. They are just not attractive like traditional June strawberries.
But MY-OH-MY, are they flavorful!! Dave said, “They are so tasty, they will make you cry!” (I was a little skeptical that they were THAT good. Tears were close though.) And here’s a tip when you are judging these berries: the bronzier the color, the better they taste.
Mary Margaret likes to blend the strawberries with her stick blender and then add a couple of scoops of ice cream “or yogurt, but ice cream is way better, especially at nine o’clock at night!” Then blend again and enjoy a cool and refreshing milkshake. Or you can prep your strawberry puree, put it in the freezer for a bit and then blend with the ice cream for an even thicker milkshake.
