When we arrived here last week, to my delight I discovered that strawberries were currently in season. That afternoon we bought a kilo for 20 pesos…and then they were gone within two days. On Monday, when we went to the open-air market, everyone was selling a kilo for 15 pesos. I bought another kilo and decided the goodness should last a little longer than two days. We ate some fresh, and one afternoon last week, I had some sweetener, cooked them down and canned them. And now that they are on their way out of season, we have some as back-up!
At the market I also tried a mouth-watering black berry, but they had a high price. I was told that in a few weeks people will be bringing in heaps of them from their farms. Yum….anticipation!
