As I dig through this stash of recipes, the 3×5 cards start to run together. The handwritten recipes that have been added to binders, peak my curiosity. This hand sewn little recipe book from “May 13, 1930″ had me dying to try something inside. But there was a problem.
I’ve been shopping our Farmer’s Market this month and I keep catching it at closing time. Not on purpose, it’s just the way it has worked out; but every week as I walk through a man is calling out, “Three baskets, five bucks.” He hands my kids a sample each time and he’s got us hooked. These are the strawberries you dream about, red, juicy, flavorful and sweet. They are amazing, but you’ve gotta eat them fast or you’ll have a spoiled bunch in the fridge.
