Brent and LeAnna Alderman StersteBefore we get to the subject of strawberries, you must go read Kitchen-Geeking’s response (A Little Bit About Knitting) to Brent’s last blog about knitting. An interesting cross-application to cooking as pleasurable work.

And on to the strawberries:

We picked ten pounds of berries and probably ate another ten!

After having massive berry envy all week from hearing friends talking about the strawberries in their CSA farm-shares, we had to get ourselves to the U-pick fields.

We filled up the 10-pound container they gave us easily enough. It wasn’t until we got home that we discovered that 10 pouds of rapidly ripening fruit was not going to stay fresh long, and we had to act quickly.
