When local strawberries are in season, they are best served with a very simple presentation - like this one. Smaller varieties of strawberries are generally better. Our local pick-your-own farmer is very frank: "The big ones are in this field, the good ones are in that field." I am always amazed that plenty of people will settle for the big ones, just because they are faster to pick. Fuggedaboudit! Life is too short to pick strawberries fast. Get the good ones.
