“You stand out like a strawberry in a bowl of peas”


My grandmother always said this to me, and I remember often putting s strawberry in the bowl of peas I had just shelled with her to see what I looked like!

This week saw us picking the first of the strawberries from our tunnel.  Mind you the outside patch is coming on.  And before we know it we’ll be knee deep in strawberry jam/ soup/ cake/ buns/ tart….

And that’s a good thing.  But at this present moment in time, our strawberries are very precious, and a little “unique” in terms of colour and shape.  So for the two cakes I was making, I decided to buy some Irish Strawberries, (Keelings- not sponsored- promise!).
