To me the first local strawberries of the season is something special. I could go on and on about how badly packaged the supermarket strawberries are in the UK and how long it takes for them to end up in the shop after picking.
I must say, at this, Sweden is a lot better. You have fresh strawberries in small cartons and no plastic in sight, so you can smell and touch them before you buy.
Anyway, the best way to eat strawberries, apart from sun warmed off the plant is with cream and sugar. Is there anything better, I wonder?!
