Strawberry Season

It is strawberry season here in Southern California. And with that being the case comes the request from many family members to make a fresh glazed strawberry pie.. And since this pie is so easy to make I am happy to oblige.

You will be proud to set this beauty on your table when it is time for dessert. Sit back enjoy and soak up the compliments.

How can something so pretty and so tasty be so easy..

Fresh Picked Daily

If you have a local farmer's market or a local fruit stand near you it is a great source for farm fresh and daily picked strawberries.

In my area we have several small scale strawberry fields.

The strawberries are hand picked daily.

The prices are very reasonable and a whole lot fresher then the strawberries that are purchase at my local grocery store.

Usually theses are small local farmers that do their own planting, picking and selling. Often times you will see the whole family at work, either in the fields or behind the stand..What a great way to help out a local business.

Growing Strawberries

Grow Your Own

Of course you could always grow your.

However I have found to get enough strawberries to make a fresh strawberry glazed pie, you will need a whole lot of strawberry plants to get them to produce enough at once.

But having said that, it is still fun to grow strawberries and to eat them fresh from the garden. Strawberries are full of vitamin C and other healthy benefits.

Planting

If you buy your strawberry plants, it is best to plant them soon after purchase, this will help to prevent transplant shock.

Plant in well prepared soil, with added compost, worked into the soil. Be sure to plant the crown right at the soil line. Plant them one to two feet apart. If you will pinch off the blooms the first year, this will result in larger crops later. A planted bed of strawberries will last up to five years.

Be sure to use netting as birds tend to be more of a problem then insect and disease.

      It's strawberry season here in Peru and I just saw some beautiful berries at the market! My grandmother used to make a glaze pie very similar to this one...what nice memories. Maybe I'll have to go buy enough to make my own pie with your recipe. Thank you!
