the berry lineup at the Smoketown/Shelby Park Market on Saturday

Luke and I were talking with some friends and fellow foodies over dinner last night (Wiltshire on Market – if you have not gone, you must. They have a nearly all-local menu that changes weekly. It is pricey, so save up and do it!) about how these few weeks between Spring and Summer are simply the best of the year. You’ve got the ridiculously great greens, crisp and tender lettuces, spicy and sweet radishes, garlic scapes and scallions, and…the berries! So, I thought I’d dedicate a post to some excellent berry recipes I’ve looked up recently:

Strawberry pop tarts

Strawberry Pavlova (don’t be intimidated. it’s an easy recipe that looks incredibly impressive!)

Avocados with Strawberry Salsa and Tortilla strips

Strawberry Leather (like a fruit roll-up, but AWESOME)

No-cook Strawberry Ice Cream (you need an ice cream maker)

that should be enough to keep everybody busy for awhile 🙂
