When the strawberry season hits Norway Norwegians turn completely strawberry happy. Due to the very long days and moderate climate the strawberries build up a marvellous sweetness while they ripen which make them both sweeter and darker in colour than the imported berries we now a days can buy the year round.
In the season you can buy strawberries along most Norwegian main roads. Home made signs with a big strawberry and the prize of one basket signals that someone have them for sale around the next bend. And we stop and buy usually not one, but two or three baskets. And the day’s dessert is secured.
We eat them just as they are, with cream and sugar, with custard, with ice cream, with just a sprinkle of sugar or my personal favourite, with sweet balsamic vinegar.
When we’re tired of having them for dessert, we buy a couple of crates containing 12 baskets and make homemade strawberry jam so we can enjoy them the rest of the year as well – Ted
