Strawberries for spring!

Well, the weather has suddenly turned beautiful. The almond and cherry trees are blooming, the sun is shining, and today I took a walk in my shirt sleeves – face turned up towards the sun.

It’s winter going on spring, and spring going on summer, and nothing seems like a more fitting way to celebrate this fact than with a bowl of juicy, red, delicious Spanish strawberries.

Often thought of as a summer fruit, strawberry season in Spain (the world’s second largest producer and number one exporter of this fruit) is actually already underway, giving us the perfect accompaniment for these wonderfully sunny Spanish skies and the first signs of spring.
