Strawberry Fields Forever

berry1.JPGLocal strawberry season is all too short and definitely sweet. We hit the strawberry fields at W & A Farms in Richmond to make the most of what's left of the season. Farmer Bill Zylmans (shown here in the middle of the patch) says eat or process them as soon as possible once you get them home. As my daughter loudly proclaimed from the field, they're "RIPE!"

Here's a classic recipe that showcases local berries, made even better with the addition of chocolate. Enjoy! - posted by Margaret Gallagher
