Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits. This little ruby-red fruit is sweet and slightly tart. In many parts of California, we enjoy locally grown strawberries most of the year. But come summer, you’ll find baskets of berries plentiful in the farmers’ markets and grocery stores. Strawberry pie and strawberry shortcake become the favorite desserts of summer.
