Berry season is upon us! Flavorful, ripe, local organic strawberries. We have a local farmers' market on Sundays that is a 5 minute walk from our house (lucky us)!!
Last week I picked up a whack of fresh strawberries and made this ridiculously simple Strawberry Vanilla Cream Pie. I need to test it again, and once I do, I'll cut a piece to show you a photo of a slice (forgot to do so this time round).
This past Sunday organic cherries were out as well... yay!! I only buy organic strawberries, cherries, and raspberries, because of the "dirty dozen" rule (see this post). That means I only buy fresh berries during 'berry season'. The rest of the year I buy frozen organic berries, and I am always sad when summer winds down and fresh organic berries (and peaches) are done for the year.
I'm fairly certain I'll include this recipe in Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan. Even though it is very easy and straightforward, I think that's what a lot of us need in recipes from time to time. Not sure what the recipe name will be (maybe just Strawberry Vanilla Cream Pie??), but the recipe will most likely make it into the new book...
if only berry season lasted longer! :)
