Strawberry Season


Strawberry cake with strawberry and basil buttercream icing

Sadly, strawberry season is over.  I miss it already.   Even with the cool and rainy season that seemed as if it wouldn't ever end, we had a really wonderful crop of tiny berries.


We have a small patch of both everbearing and June bearing berries.  The everbearing will produce all summer but in "snack on" type of quantities, probably not enough to make a recipe that calls for a big batch.



While we had bunches coming out of the garden, we took advantage and made strawberry ice cream (wasn't my favorite recipe), a celebratory start to summer cake, and canned jam to use over the next year.
