If there’s something that smells and tastes like spring to me is this delicious and simple bowl of strawberries and orange juice freshly squeezed.
When spring comes, and with it the season of strawberries, my mum used (and still does) buy a box of strawberries and prepares a huge bowl of these. The secret is to let the preparation rest in the refrigerator for a few hours so that the taste of strawberries soak into the juice. After that time the juice will have a reddish colour and the strawberries will be soft and cold, perfect to enjoy a sunny Sunday morning in the garden.
It may not seem the most exciting recipe but to me is a lot more than just a delicious mixture. As soon as I smell or taste this combination all the past springs from my childhood come back to my mind.
