The first fruit that usually appears in the summer is strawberries. I just purchased my first quart of strawberries and made a wonderful strawberry shortcake recipe. If you enjoy fresh fruits like this, be cautious what you buy in the grocery stores. The fruits that most grocery stores sell are usually several days old. Not only is this fruit old, you will almost always pay more money. Instead of buying it at a grocery store, look for farmer’s markets or small stands around your town.
One of my favorite things to do is to visit farmer’s markets. Now keep in mind the prices are not always cheap, but the quality is great. I am very excited this year because the small town I live in is now hosting a weekly farmer’s market every Wednesday. This is a great thing for me because I love these things.
