My children and I love fresh strawberries but I refuse point-blank to pay over the odds for them when they are fresh. When they are in season, I stock up on these, often freezing them to add to yoghurt or milkshakes, or most times I make jams to last throughout the year. I buy them in bulk when they are on offer at the local markets and supermarkets, and I was very surprised when I recently came across some supersized fruit!.
Now I grow many strawberries both at home and at my allotment, but I have never come across any as big as this!. FYI – you’d be mistaken into thinking that this was my daughters’ hand – it is in fact mine! (For those who know me personally, you will also know that I have quite large hands for a lady!). In contrast, the size of the fruit really astonished me but I just had to have them.
My youngest daughter didn’t seem to mind though and as soon as they were washed, couldn’t wait to get them in her mouth!
