Guess what I have been doing? For all of those of you yelled – ‘STRAWBERRY PICKING’ at the top of your voices – you were right!!! Although technically these strawberries were picked by my Mum and my Grandmother – I know my Grandmother right – she’s so awesome!

I came home for the weekend and my Mum showed me the basket – despite having eaten copious – especially me when I arrived home - and having made 4 litres of my simply scrumptious strawberry ice cream (if you haven’t tried that recipe yet next time you have lots of strawberries it’s a must!) she still had a nearly full basket left.

‘Have no worries’ I said – Wimbledon season is fast approaching and with it my favourite three weeks of super awesome strawberry recipes. Which means I can make good use of those strawberries – although I must admit that there were more than a fair few left for eating once I’d finished - but who minds left over strawberries right?!?!
