Discover the Sweetness of Dorset: Strawberry Season is here!

Summer is here!

Time to swap out the brassicas for the vibrant, delights of the season.

Strawberries are at their sweet, juicy, flavourful best. But don’t miss out on raspberries this month too! Find them at your local farm shop or producers markets.

Whether you’re picnicking in the Dorset countryside or enjoying a lazy afternoon at home, these vibrant berries are a sheer delight for the taste buds, and a great all-rounder. Perfect for jams, jellies, sauces, and compotes.

The Sweetness of Simplicity

Slice a handful of ripe strawberries and arrange them on a plate. Drizzle with honey or a balsamic reduction for an elegant treat. Pair with a glass of chilled rosé or sparkling water for a refreshing moment.

Strawberry Bruschetta: Swap tomatoes for strawberries in your bruschetta. Toast slices of baguette, or sourdough –  spread with goats cheese, and top with diced strawberries, basil, and a sprinkle of black pepper. A tangy burst of flavour awaits!

Sippin’ Strawberry Bliss

Strawberry Lemonade: Mix freshly squeezed lemon juice, crushed strawberries, and a touch of agave or sugar syrup. Dilute with sparkling water or still water. Garnish with mint leaves and ice. Sip under the sun.

Strawberry Smoothie: Blend strawberries, banana, Greek yogurt, a splash of orange juice or honey, and a tablespoon of peanut butter and voilà! A creamy, vitamin-packed smoothie to kickstart your day.

Dreamy Desserts

Strawberry Shortcake: Layer fluffy sponge cake with whipped cream and sliced strawberries. Dust with icing sugar. Delicious. It’s a classic that never disappoints.

Eton Mess: Crush meringue nests or homemade meringues, fold in whipped cream, and add chopped strawberries. Serve in glass jars for a rustic, indulgent dessert.

Classic Cream Tea

Enjoy them on a warm scone, with jam, Dorset clotted cream and a pot of Clipper Tea.

As you relish each bite, remember that strawberries aren’t just delicious—they’re a powerhouse of nutrients, where vitamin C, antioxidants, and fibre come together.

So, whether you’re nibbling them straight from the punnet, dipping them into melted chocolate, transforming them into culinary delights or enjoying a cheeky Strawberry Daiquiri or Mojito. Let Dorset’s strawberries brighten your summer days.
