One of the things about July first (Canada day) is that it also signals the beginning of strawberry season around here. The real strawberries, red all the way through, juicy with tons of that strawberry flavor! I love fresh strawberries, I'm actually not a fan of them most other ways. Mom used to make something called "freezer jam" and it was pretty good. Like the name says, it was a jam but you had to store it in the freezer. When you needed jam, take it out of the freezer, let thaw and you had that fresh strawberry taste in the middle of winter. It was also good on vanilla ice cream or plain frozen yogurt.
Tonight I couldn't stop eating them. I guess that I'm really going to have the "runs" tomorrow... sorry TMI.
I love fresh fruit, it's so hard to get these days, everything is always picked too early and has no flavor or is dry. A coworker came back from a trip and brought fresh ripe mango, wow was that ever good, mango already tastes good but I never had it that good before, it was like sex for my taste buds!
