Ripening Strawberries

As I wrote yesterday, its not quite summer yet, but the strawberries in my garden are beginning to reward us, ripening slowly but surely.  
Yesterday afternoon, I harvested a whole punnet.  I recently made some Strawberry Flapjacks, but always welcome recipe suggestions - sweet or savoury. 
I am sharing this Punnet of Strawberries with Daphne's Dandelions for Harvest MondaysSharing this time round made me smile a little as around this time last year I also shared Punnet of Strawberries

  1. Yum yum! I've just had my first strawberry harvest for the season as well. They don't look anywhere near as nice as yours, however. I'm thinking that I'll be changing up my varieties when I start a new patch in a year or two.

    1. Oh Margaret, your very kind. Thank you. I hope yours improve with time, or as you said, change the variety. I don't now what variety mine are actually, as they were there from the previous home owners and produce new runners each year.

    1. I'm pretty pleased with them and there was not much I had to do, thankfully. Plenty more to come, so be warned strawberry recipes coming.

    1. Patience will reward you Susue, just a matter of more subsiding days and then you can feast

  4. Few things are as nice as a home-grown Strawberry, freshly-picked! I never have very many, so I like to eat them plain, not made into anything. (Well, perhaps with a bit of clotted cream added...)

    1. Clotted cream sounds good, but we have loads coming - so there will be baked goodies and maybe some jams!

  5. Strawberries are my favorite harvest this week. I've mostly been making smoothies and muffins with them.

    1. I did see your wonderful harvest. Smoothies sounds good, but I am thinking muffins too. I made some a few years back called strawberry cheesecake muffins, so may make them again.

    1. Sally - please don't apologise - I understand. I remember where i was 2 years ago and it took a while to get out of that rut, things are much better now so I wish you the same.
