Notes

Since we're not eating these strawberries it doesn't matter if they're sour or misshapen. What does matter is that they taste like strawberries. Decades of selective breeding for size, frost and pest resistance have resulted in strawberries that are often bland and flavorless. I find that smaller berries from farmers markets work much better than the large commercial variety. If you can't smell them as you walk by, don't buy them.
