I don't actually know if strawberries are still in season. I believe their time is waning. But they were in season a few weeks ago which is when I intended to write this post.
Peter and John and I went strawberry picking earlier this month and came home with 15 pounds of strawberries. Most of which are now frozen. And in about 10 days I ate strawberries at nearly every meal while trying 5 new recipes.
