If you know anything about the ladies behind delishsis, know this: the Billark sisters LOVE strawberries. To celebrate both the coming of strawberry season and our mutual love for them, we’ve decided to devote the rest of the month here at delishsis to STRAWBERRIES!
We have fond memories of going strawberry picking every June with our Grandmother, a tradition we still have today. There is nothing quite like the taste of a warmed by the sun, freshly picked, small, sweet Ontario Strawberry and that’s why we usually end up eating more in the field than we carry out of it.
Although sadly, this year we didn’t make it down to Niagara-on-the-Lake for this lovely tradition with Grandma B, we were thrilled that Whittamore’s Farm of Markham, Ontario set up a pop up strawberry stand in our neighbourhood on Roncesvalles at Westminster this weekend. The friendly people from Whittamore’s Farm are going to be there every day until the end of Strawberry season selling strawberries picked fresh each morning. Isn’t that so awesome ?!
We were busy all weekend creating and shooting sweet, savoury and spicy (yes spicy) Strawberry recipes made to showcase this glorious fruit. We can’t wait to share them with you in the days and weeks to come! Wondering what to expect? Well, we’re not telling you. You’ll just have to check back tomorrow!
