Strawberries. For the last time.


Since I'm not a fan of those imported rubbery monsters we can all "enjoy" during the winter. Go out and grab the very last, late Ontario strawberries. Now. Run. Serve them macerated, with some whipped cream, or alongside your favourite brownie.
I still have a handful of them. They deserve a regal treatment, even if they're not exactly freshly picked. I'll bake them. Gently, for a few minutes to soften and release those juices. Then knock them over with homemade custard. Real vanilla, please!!!

Isn't it sad when the last of the strawberries leave?? We can also find strawberries in the store the entire year, but nothing compares in flavor to the summer strawberries!

I will miss our fresh strawberries too and all the other fruits of summer.
These brownies look quite decadent!
