Seasonal Food: Strawberries

Strawberries are coming into season soon. So, now is a good time to start thinking about all the wonderful things you can make with them. Today on our Recipes page we have a formula for making great StrawberryShortcake. guest chef Lisa Horel recalls her family’s travels when she was a girl. The highlight was the early summer treat available across the country of strawberry shortcake.

“Sometimes the shortcake was a biscuit — other times it was pound cake gone awry. And once in a while it was a cross between a scone and a biscuit. The scones won our hearts. Not a summer goes by since then, that as soon as the berries show up at our farmers’ markets we are making shortcakes until the supply is gone.”

Horel offers us her Scone-based Roadside Strawberry Shortcake on our Recipes page.
