British strawberries means summer has finally arrived here in the UK. Bet you didn’t think you would enjoy anything more than fresh strawberries and cream this summer but wait until you try our fresh strawberry porridge.
Strawberries are only around in Britain during the summer months (June to August to be more precise). Strawberries from a local provider are by far the best, lots of people in the UK visit strawberry farms and pick their own (PYO). The flavour is incomparable to shop bought strawberries and think of all the delicious creations you can make with your handpicked strawberries.
Make sure you are gentle when washing your strawberries to avoid bruising and it is important to know you should remove the green hull after washing.
