It is the time of year when fresh strawberries are available–giving me the opportunity to make my annual strawberry pie.
Dolloped with fresh whipping cream. Delicious! The simple pleasures in life.
I have never heard of fall strawberries. But none-the-less, I was thrilled to find a farmer selling fall strawberries on the side of the road.
This year has been a bumper crop, at least for me personally. No, I don’t grow strawberries, but we happened to be in Texas during their strawberry season, then traveled through Arkansas when they were harvesting the red delicious beauties and blessed with last spring and early fall strawberries in Virginia!
I just love picking and processing any type of berries! Our first place to pick strawberries was at scenic Marburger Orchard in Fredericksburg, Texas.
It had been quilt a while since we’ve had homemade ice cream (close to a decade) and during the late spring, I dusted the cobwebs off my machine and made a batch. Yum, yum!
Once a year, when the strawberries are in season, I make a scrumptius homemade pie.
