Spring Memories : Strawberries & Juice

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.

“The best things in life aren’t things”

How to do it:

Cut the strawberries and put in a bowl.

Make orange juice (enough to cover the strawberries).

Let it cool for an hour in the refrigerator and ENJOY!

  3. My gran uses this idea when she made fruit salads! She’d also add flaked almonds on the top, I think I’m going to have to make a fruit salad tomorrow and squeeze orange juice over it! Thanks for this post it’s really inspired me and reminded me of something I might have otherwise forgotten!
