From last year, but one of my favorite things I've ever written for this site: Strawberry Fields Forever, a look at my family's strawberry growing tradition. I haven't made it there yet this year so I've been forced to eat local berries. And I have to say the berries at the Greenmarket here in New York pale in comparison to my grandfather's.

I tried to grow alpine strawberries on my roof deck and failed :( there is nothing like your own grown berries! i suppose i can always try next year...

That's one of my favorite posts of yours as well.

We picked fresh berries last weekend and made a "fresh" strawberry jam--it's an Alice Waters recipe that's not canned and theoretically only lasts a couple of months in the fridge. In reality, it will be gone by weekend. We also made a strawberry sorbet that's so good it doesn't make sense. It's hard to beat strawberries straight from the field.
