Serious Eats: Talk
I used to love strawberries.
I know there is a glut of strawberries out there this year again. There are so many that they are actually destroying some crops, instead of spending the money to pick them. And, the prices are VERY cheap. But...I have noticed, no matter how ripe and beautiful they are, unless they are almost rotten, they are not sweet, and basically have no flavor. I will not even eat them raw, even though I keep buying them and trying them, I end up cooking them down for jelly. Anyone else agree?
