First Local Strawberries
Bigger is not always better. I suppose those gigantic Driscoll strawberries are beautiful in their way, and might even be welcomed off-season if one were in urgent need of strawberries, but these little jewels can't be beat when it comes to flavor.
They were on offer at the first stand I came to today at the market and the aroma hit me even before the sight of them glistening in the sunlight did. As is my practice, I made quick rounds of the place to see who had what and what looked good before making any decisions, but no other berries looked or, more importantly, smelled nearly as tempting as these.
Long weekend. Gorgeous weather. Amazing strawberries. I am one happy camper!
