We have picked up our second harvest of outdoor-grown Strawberries from our preferred farmer in Kent today. The variety is the same as the one we had last Saturday for you - ‘Jubilee’ – which grows particularly well in the growing conditions of Kent.
This distinctly heart-shaped variety is naturally sweet and juicy with just the right level of acidity so we are very pleased to have them again. Picking is only just getting going so, rest assured, we will select the best flavour varieties as the season progresses.
Strawberries are naturally high in vitamin C and this variety is particularly good as it requires little, if any, sugar to bring out its best. In fact a light grinding of pepper, instead, may be all you need. Strawberries also pair well with rhubarb and outdoor-grown rhubarb is at its best now. Just a few berries added when cooking brings a wonderful perfume to a dish of rhubarb.
