There is an abundance of wonderful fruit available here. Even though we’re in the north, we can still easily purchase very fresh tropical fruits grown in the south, and we’re constantly enjoying the seasonal fruit. Right now pomello is available in the market, and little mangoes and mangosteen and Chinese melon, and pineapple, and…
If there’s anything we are familiar with that we miss, it would be berries. You don’t buy frozen fruit or vegetables here, and many things simply aren’t grown. Blueberries are rare and expensive, and raspberries unheard of (two of my most favorite fruits of all).
But mulberries and strawberries abound in season, and now that we have a large freezer to put them in, I can save all that goodness for when it can’t be found.
Strawberries are in season now. Yum!
