strawberry time




june is such a tender month. still lush and green, but that time of year in the northern hemisphere, when the stalls at the farmers' market start to burst with freshness. just looking at them makes me happy.

and it's strawberry month.

the other day, i had a wonderful slice of strawberry cake with just a hint of balsamic vinegar in the glaze. a taste that made me stop, hold my breath and be amazed. it so brought out the flavour of the fruit without overpowering it. my guess is, it was just a few drops, no more. i will definitely try to make this cake myself.

any recipes you consider a stunner recently? tell me!

p.s.: i'm so smitten with my nikkormat and slide film, i can't even begin to tell you. this is from my latest roll of film.

These photographs are so good, I can taste that strawberry tart (my favorite pastry of all time). I have some yummy ones on my "Melbourne Part 1 post". Can't wait to see more of your pics.

Bei uns sind die Erdbeeren immer so schnell verschwunden/verzehrt, das ein Erdbeerkuchen schnell gehen muss.... Dafür verwende ich Mürbeteig Tortletts mit Vanillepudding (Landliebe) und oben drauf die Erdbeeren, dazu Sprühsahne ;-) so schnell wie das zubereitet ist, sind sie auch schon wieder weg! Ich würde auch lieber ein Stück von Deinem Kuchen mit Balsamico kosten.

I've read about strawberry-balsamic vinegar combination before but approached it with a lot of reserve...

but since you recommend it...

Marion said...

Such beautiful images. Strawberries are very good here in Northern California right now too. My husband and I ate them straight from the basket for dessert last night.

Sounds and looks delicious. I will try to copy. In june we eat pancakes (thin, 'Swedish'?)with strawberries, whipped cream, sugar and cinnamon. We have a little booth on our street selling locally grown berries of the season. The booth built like a giant strawberry. Sweet.
