It’s that time of year maybe a little later than normal, that the heady smell of ripening fruit fills the air. It causes great excitement in our house when the pick your own sign goes up not too far from where we live. The first chance we get you will find us picking and filling punnets to our heart’s content to be brought home to be turned into jam, iced lollies or purely eaten naked in all their glory!
I even have many a container crammed full of tiny alpine strawberries in the garden, there is nothing better than popping out first thing on a morning in my nightie to fill a bowl to sprinkle on our cereal.
A jar of jam is an essential holiday must have, along with a big pile of magazines! Waking up in our tent having jam on toast for breakfast in the sunshine.

We salute you the British summer strawberry, doesn’t get any better than that!
