Strawberries are in full swing!
It’s mid way through the year and there is so much to choose from when shopping for local, fresh fruit and veggies. See our helpful, but by no means definitive, list below. We do hope you will find it useful.
There’s no missing the roadside vendors of new potatoes and Wexford strawberries that pop up this time of year. And it’s truly great to have direct access to fresh, local produce. Strawberries, in particular, epitomise summer – freshly picked, sweet, fragrant and smothered in cream. Mmmmm… To enhance the taste some folk cast a twist of black pepper over them, others swear by a dash of wine/cider vinegar. Personally I can’t vouch for either of those suggestions but I do know a sprinkling of sugar adds to the experience! In our house we are lucky to be regularly treated to a deliciously light strawberry cake. See the recipe here.
