At about 8pm, I went out into the garden to check on the cats that were out on their own. I found them both down by our wild strawberry plants. I realized I hadn't picked any berries this week and got in to get a bowl for them.
After ten-fifteen minutes I had 2dl/0.75cup of wild strawberries.
Now, what to do with that many wild strawberries?
Well, cake of course!!!
This is an improvised cake with wild strawberries and white chocolate. I used a recipy for the base but cut down on sugar and added my berries and grated chocolate.
So, I picked the berries at just after 8pm and had the first piece at 9.45pm. Boyfriend was up all last night working and only came home for one hour of sleep between 5am and 6am this morning before going to work again. He was in bed before 8pm when I went to check on the cats, so no cake for him yet...
We have tons of wild strawberries in our garden. Even though I picked as many as I did, you can't see the difference if you look at the plants. There are so many berries. I have picked this amount at least once a week for a month now and the berries keep coming. Some parts of the "hill" they're on are in the shade for more hours than some of the others. This makes the berries go ripe at different times.
I love wild strawberries!
