While picked-fresh-from-the-garden strawberries are the best, store bought ones will do this time of year when strawberries are bountiful. We had quite a few ripening strawberries in a whiskey barrel that would have been perfect in a day or two, but alas, the chickens got to them first. The follies of letting them free-range. Still, during the summer and after a barbecue, there is nothing I like more than a large helping of strawberry shortcake. Okay, so perhaps it is quite a few hours after eating said barbecue food.

Strawberries for me are the first signs that summer is on its way. And then I pour sugar on them, macerate them and dump them on top of a slightly sweetened buttermilk biscuit and lots of freshly whipped cream.
