First Shuksan Strawberries of the year...a sweet time!

School's out, it's baseball season, kid's are hitting the swimming hole and It's strawberry time in the Pacific Northwest. These are the real thing. So red and sweet but they need to be eaten or processed the same day they are picked. Not a problem because you can't stop eating them. The red on the inside is exactly the same color as it is on the outside. No white centers here. These are called June-bearing berries. Season is only a few glorious weeks.
