I love strawberries. Every March when they begin appearing on grocery store shelves I know that warm weather is on the way, regardless of what mother nature is currently throwing at us (snow in parts of the Puget Sound this morning). The first crop of not-quite-as-flavorful-as-normal strawberries is a welcome sight, and usually on sale. 4 pounds for $5 at QFC.
With 4 pounds of berries though, one must come up with alternative uses for them. I saw only one noble enough use for the second best of the berries (raspberries being the preeminent berry), chocolate. Dark, high cacao content chocolate. Bittersweet to counteract the salacious sweetness of the berries.
