It is a proud moment in blogging when a post ends up on the cover of a magazine!
In May of 2015 I posted a blog featuring “A Mother’s Day Tennessee Strawberry Tart” and now May 2016…one year later my tart is the cover story of the May/June Edible Nashville. Thanks Jill Melton and Edible!
There is nothing so sweet as the beginning of Strawberry Season. Every May the Downtown Nashville Farmer’s Market begins to fill up with local farmers offering pints and quarts of berries and this May is no different. I bought my first berries this past weekend. I picked up a couple of extra cartons for gifts for my daughters. Yes Strawberries do say love!
So in honor of Tennessee Strawberry time I am going to share previous posts I have done which feature fresh, local, Spring Strawberries.
Here is where you will find the full recipe and original story with how-to photos to make “A Mother’s Day Tennessee Strawberry Tart”.
Want to keep some of that berry-goodness for later in the year? “Strawberries Fresh Picked & Put Up!” is the easiest of recipes for making a few jars of freezer strawberry jam.
“Saturday, Spring Strawberries, Buttered Toast…..” My partner, Wouter, shares his Dutch “recipe” for enjoying the first Spring strawberries…sugared on buttered toast.
And last, but not least, if you want to spend a bit more time and really impress your family and friends then you might want to try out this recipe for “Ruby Red Strawberry Victoria Sponge Cake with Lemon Mascarpone Filling”. It is a stunner!
If I were a berry I would enjoy resting on top of a sponge cake, dusted with powdered sugar….or swirling around in sweet juice in a canning jar for all to admire….or being wrapped up snuggly in a blanket of dough. Wouldn’t you?
