"Strawberry fields forever..." ~ John Lennon
You can't beat Wisconsin strawberries freshly picked in June. For years, my mom and grandma would buy flats of berries from Chaudoir's in Sturgeon Bay. We spent hours prepping berries for jam and shortcake before freezing them to enjoy long after the season ended. Sadly, the crops at Chaudoir's were destroyed in a hailstorm in 2007, yet I still look forward to seasonal strawberries. Here's my recipe for strawberry-spinach salad. Martha has some good ideas too ;-)
