First Strawberry Shortcake of the Year
One of Rich's favorite desserts is Strawberry Shortcake. Even though he is allergic to them.....after the first bite he sneezes 6-7 times and then he's okay. This was the first of many Strawberry Shortcakes he will enjoy this year.
We always go to one of the local farms and purchase flats of strawberries and freeze them for later use. I just slice the berries and place 2 cups of unsweetened berries in Ziploc bags and freeze. Purchasing the berries locally we can get the sweetest, ripest berries so that we don't have to add any sugar.
