Apparently this is a good year for strawberries. Biggest & best English strawberry crop for years, they say. And that is fine by me! Certainly our strawberries got off to a very good start with these fine specimens.
Hulled, quartered and thrown onto some of the best pancakes I have ever made (1.5 cups plain flour, 0.5 cups SR flour, 2 eggs, a leftover spoonful of sour cream and enough milk to make a batter, rested half an hour) with freshly squeezed lemon juice and a good sprinkling of crunchy sugar. Perfection.
