Maine Strawberries

Michael and I spent an hour picking strawberries at a field near our house
Saturday. It was way funner than I expected and it went fast. We picked eight
quarts in an hour, and that was with the child operating at a “mama activity
speed.”

I’m not quite sure what to do with them all. We gorged ourselves on strawberries
and whipped cream Saturday night and Sunday. I took some berries in to share
with my coworkers on Monday.

Of course, they are delicious, just as they are. Sweet without sugar or cream or
chocolate and juicy and firm from all the rain we had this spring.

But now it’s Wednesday and I’ve got to get the remaining ones in the
freezer.

However I did pull out several of the biggest ones to dip in chocolate.
