I bought these strawberries during the height of strawberry season. They are from a local Nova Scotia farm and were phenomenal in my chocolate crepes. Nowadays, I buy the regular strawberries and they have little flavour and go bad too fast. This is the fruit of summer I will miss the most.
Now that fall is here and winter is approaching, less and less fresh from the farm foods will be available. We will be spending more time in the frozen food section picking up fruit in a bag. Fresh produce if available will become less and less financially feasible and saved only for those special occasions. For example, every Valentine’s Day I do buy fresh raspberries if they are in the market for my husband for a raspberry fool. Raspberries are his favourite thing in the world.
What fruits of summer will you miss the most? What will you indulge in anyway for those special treats?
