Guess What Season It Is?

If you said spring...
you'd be correct.
And if you said Rose Festival season...
you'd be right too.
But,
as all of us know---
the best part of this time of year is...
 it is
 the beginning of
our LOCAL strawberry season!
Oh, yea:)

And what do I plan to do with all this strawberry sweetness?
1) rinse and eat (done)
2) rinse and eat more (soon)
and
3) make these wonderful, delectable, yummy fresh strawberry muffins ASAP

Again,
 I will add a little lemon zest
(because I adore lemons),
use raw sugar
(because I LOVE that stuff)
and add--
possibly
a teeny. tiny bit of extra milk
(if I think it needs it).

But I won't overfill the muffin tins
NOPE!
(even though my oven could use a good cleaning again).

OK, locals and others---
what is the first thing you will do with the first ripe berries from your area?

And now to eatin'

Blessings,
Aimee

Notes:
Nancy's recipe is highly rated by many (and I mean many) people;
if you are looking for a fresh strawberry muffin recipe, I KNOW you'll like hers!
I know I do:)

Oh wow, those berries are red! I can't wait for them to be available here. Thanks for the recipe, I printed it up. I have a muffin each morning with my coffee but haven't found the perfect recipe.. I'll try this!
((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Mmmmmm those do look so good. I have yet to buy local strawberries!A terrible oversight I can see.

But we have been getting strawberries and having them plain, on salad or with icecream.

My next project is to cook some with a little honey, applesauce and then put some torn up basil leaves stirred in before letting them cool into jam.

I totally agree! I can hardly wait for our garden's to ripen. Meanwhile, I will be content with all the berries my DH can bring me:)

Teresa~
They are and for once my camera did a good job on the red!
I hope you like Nancy's muffins...I am planning to bake some in just a few minutes! Your berries should be coming on in a bit; my DH bought these in the same area as last year (seems they get them earlier than other areas).

Grace~
Your idea for jam sounds intriguing! Perhaps a post...? I would look forward to that!

Blessings to you all!
Aimee
