I have vivid memories of getting on a school bus
Saturday mornings and heading
to the strawberry fields in Portland Oregon,
as a young girl I picked these berries.
I made $1.25 for my days work.
One of the perks were; you could eat
all the strawberries you wanted.
When my family moved to Huntington Beach Calif., it was not uncommon to to see fields and fields of strawberry plants. By then, the pickers were immigrants from Mexico.
Today, living in Utah, I must say, that this state
gets the very best berries available on the market.
I don't know the reason, but it is a fact.
We love this fruit and look forward to
it's appearance every March -May.
Here is a great way to bring unique flavor and taste to this fruit in a different way.
