Strawberries

June's best: Strawberries

Picnics, vanilla ice cream… Strawberries are the ultimate summer fruit. A happy heart-shaped sight, they’re abundant now and tastier than ever.

Our quick and tasty tips:

  • Try marinating them in the zest and juice of an orange and a lemon and a sprinkle of caster sugar.
  • Chill for an hour or so and serve with cream and meringues and a little chopped mint on top, if you like.
