a time for healing and letting go of your burden
Tonight’s full moon is often known as the Strawberry Moon, not because it’s strawberry coloured, but because in England and North America this is likely to be when the first fruits of the year are ready to harvest. So this Friday I’ve decided to feature some recipes which include this sweet, red, heart-shaped fruit.
If you can find them, and if you can afford it, then buy organic strawberries, it’s well worth it. Organic strawberries will not only taste better, they will also not be full of chemical pesticide and fertiliser. The humble strawberry is the world’s best at absorbing whatever is in the soil and whatever it may have been sprayed with.
First up this week is this pretty looking dish of strawberry salsa from Cookie + kate. If strawberries seem strange in a salsa to you, then live dangerously……
This is a really fresh and tasty strawberry arugula salad with balsamic vinaigrette, this dish from Cookie + kate again. That girl must love her strawberries, unless it’s the dog cookie…..

As we all know, strawberries are a great accompaniment when it comes to the traditional English scone, so from Heather Christo, what about this strawberry rhubarb scone. Looks delicious, and come on, scones are easy to bake.

Another very traditional dish, from In Dianes Kitchen, why not try this rhubarb and strawberry pie. Perfect for a traditional English afternoon tea.

Our Collection this week is from Good Housekeeping Magazine and their 40+ delicious strawberry recipes. From there, and just to be non-traditional, I’ve chosen to feature this strawberry and almond galette. Now all you need is some champagne to go with it.

As a drink to celebrate this full moon what about a rose and ginger paloma? This is from Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest. You know that ginger is extremely good for you ~ this paloma should boost your libido no end.
