Wild Strawberries are ripe in Nova Scotia! Find a field or roadside and pick to your heart’s content! Put them on your cereal, make jam, add cream and sugar in a bowl, or just pop ’em in your mouth! Small but delicious!
Cultivated strawberries are ripe too & we’ll be celebrating Canada Day Weekend with fresh Strawberry Crepes, Jurgen’s specialty. Stay tuned for the recipe!
