I got a basket of freshly-picked strawberries today from our local Boone Hall Farms. I'm working on an article about the upcoming Strawberry Festival, and I picked these beauties up at the Boone Hall market.
They're delicious. Juicy and so red that the juice looked almost like blood when it dribbled onto my napkin and fingers. I'm thinking about dipping a few of the berries into a pool of dark chocolate, and maybe making a simple shortcake with the others. I've also heard they're great with balsamic vinegar.
What strawberry recipes do you have, readers? I'd love to have ideas!
