Black pepper and strawberries is so fantastic. Time for some of that! Thanks for the reminder. Steve!

I definitely know the quote. You've heard of Anna of "The King and I" and "Anna and the King" fame? That's how she wound up widowed. She and her husband were stationed in India, and all the locals told him to wait until evening to travel. He ignored the advice!

Yes, you can die of sun stroke. And probably of eating three puds after every meal!

Steve--It's not strawberry season, yet, but I have some strawberries in the freezer. Do you think I could substitute those for fresh berries?

Yes, I almost always use frozen strawberries (or any berry) when making ice cream or sorbet. I sometimes think the quality of frozen strawberries is better than fresh, since they are flash frozen and aren't subject to all the handling that fresh berries are. I don't know how many times I've bought a box of "fresh" strawberries, only to find mold in the bottom.

Good to know--I'll use up the strawberries I have in the freezer. Might have to toss in some blueberries or other berry to round up the amount. Steve--try going to a local "u-pick" and pick your own. I go and pick about 24 quarts the 2nd week of strawberry season--I want the berries ripe, so don't go the first week. It takes me about 2-3 hours to fill my six baskets--I'm a two-handed picker, so I can pick almost as fast as the high school kids who are getting paid to pick. Around here, the strawberry patches are clean and easy picking. I prefer to go early in the morning--it gets too darn hot otherwise. That's the best way to get lots of strawberries for jam, pie, freezing. One hot morning picking, two days preserving them.

I hate that, when there's mouldy strawberries. I find that the difference in quality is really pronounced with raspberries. I never buy fresh raspberries.

Unfortunately, around here, the "u-pick" place is quite fond of artificial fertilizers and pesticides.

I love eating vanilla ice cream with a shot of whiskey and ground black pepper, adding fresh basil to homemade lemonade, Madeira cake with marmite and melted cheese on top and I eat my Marie biscuits with butter and grated cheddar lol! They're all good though!

I add balsamic vinegar to blueberries. I also like blueberries with fresh French tarragon.

I make a lemon cake with fresh rosemary in the icing.
