Finally English Summer is here (despite all the rain) as English Strawberries are in the shops and more importantly, Lidgate Farm PYO is open. English Strawberries have an amazing smell which tell you they are ripe. Their fragrance fills the air around the farm and this is when you know they are at their best. These ruby fruits are great fresh but make a delightful jam. I also add balsamic vinegar to intensify their strawberryness. Enjoy!
