As soon as we start planting our strawberry plants, the phones at the market start ringing. People calling and emailing wanting to know when will we start serving our Strawberry Shortcake. The disappointment in their voice is heartbreaking when we have to tell them “not yet”.
You see, enjoying our Strawberry Shortcake is sort of a big deal. We only serve it from January to mid April while we have our very own locally grown fresh strawberries. We wouldn’t have it any other way. You just can’t make strawberry shortcake with frozen berries. It’s just not right! 😉
This year we started serving our “World Famous” Strawberry Shortcake on December 21st, just in time for Christmas! The recipe has been the same for over 30 years. And while I can’t share it, I will tell you what makes our Strawberry Shortcake the best!
You can’t go wrong when you use fresh ingredients. The key to a great Strawberry Shortcake is the strawberries. Growing our own berries gives us an advantage. The berries you are eating in your Strawberry Shortcake were most likely picked that morning! Easy as that! Fresh berries grown right here in Plant City. It doesn’t get any better than that!
