Let the Strawberry Eating Begin

First batch of Strawberries
Courtesy of the Berry Bay Farms in Wimauma, Fl

Lucky me scored half a flat (6 pints) of beautiful strawberries yesterday from our friends Michelle and Todd at the Berry Bay Farms. Todd is the farm manager and has been in the Agriculture Business for over 25 years and loves what he does. The website for the farm has all kinds of  "strawberry growing" photo's and info. I didn't know that   they grow onions on the outside row because it's not the favorite place to pick the strawberries (only working on one side).  I'm still learning our different varieties of Florida Strawberries,  (there are seven main varieties) and did you know that   

"Each plant is picked every 3 to 4 days. It takes a strawberry approximately 14 to 21 days (depending on weather) to go from flower to red fruit"    Visit the website to learn more fun facts.
   Today when I got home from work I played in the kitchen making Strawberry Bread Pudding,
Strawberry Bread and Angel Food Cake for Strawberry Shortcake with Hard Whipped  Cream. Yum!

Super Duper Strawberry Tart

WoW.. I know I say this a lot, but you have to admit this looks awesome! This is a
Strawberry Yogurt Mascarpone Tart and it is from Meetas blog What's For Lunch, Honey?
You will find the recipe as well as all the how to's. Just Fabulous.

I didn't know what a Mascarpone Tart was so good ole' Wikipedia came to my rescue. It's
"a triple-cream cheese made from crème fraîche, denatured with tartaric acid.[1] Sometimes buttermilk is added as well, depending on the brand. After denaturation, whey is removed without pressing or aging.[2] One can manufacture mascarpone by using cream, tartaric or citric acid, or even lemon juice.[3]

Mascarpone is milky-white in color and is easily spread. When fresh, it smells like milk and cream. It is used in various dishes of the Lombardy region of Italy, where it is a specialty. It is a main ingredient of tiramisu. It is sometimes used instead of butter or Parmesan cheese to thicken and enrich risotto."
Yum, can't wait to try it!
