Spring Strawberries

Spring Strawberries

"Doubtless God could have made
a better berry (than the strawberry),
but doubtless God never did."
- William Allen Butler

This is the recipe intended for the punnet (basket) of fresh-from-the-farm strawberries... instead, one by one, they disappeared into the sweetest kiss-along-the-lips indulgences... ah, the generous charm of a fresh new season of life...

Balsamic Berry Salad
- Sara Haws Frost

2 punnets strawberries, hulled and sliced in quarters
1 punnet blueberries
Balsamic vinegar
White sugar

Toss berries in a large bowl (you can add additional berries if you like), add balsamic vinegar and white sugar by tablespoons until you reach your preferential balance of tang, sweetness and stickiness.

Ah--nothing better than a sweet strawberry straight from the field--beautiful to look at and delicious to eat--and good for us, too!

Thank you for the recipe--what beautiful colors of the red of the strawberries and the deep blue of the blueberries--God richly blesses us in so many ways.

Hope your weekend has been a blessing of revelation and hope.

yum, we have got fresh raspberries yesterday and it was a pure joy to watch my little one to savor each of them, oh the children can express so freely and wonderfully when they like something :-) Thank you for sharing the lovely recipe Karen.
Love.
