Strawberry Picking

This past weekend my sister and I traveled home to visit our parents and celebrate my mom’s birthday.  The beginning of June not only marks my mother’s birthday, but also the beginning of strawberry season in Central NY. 

We decided to go strawberry picking at a nearby farm.  For $2 a quart, you can pick your own juicy, ripe strawberries.  We picked 8 quarts; some will be eaten right away while the others will be frozen for later use.  The strawberries were red, juicy, and perfectly tart.  Stay tuned for several strawberry recipes and remember to support your local farmers!
