Got myself heaps of strawberries.
Locally grown big ones. Luscious and cheap.
Growing strawbs is a major horticultural industry around our way, and the seasonal work of picking strawberries has begun.
So if you want a job...
Since I'm on a dehydration kick I dried them keenly. Now the neighbours & fam want their share as they are delicious done like this.
The dehydrator is going flat out drying batches for sharing around.
'Tis a taste thrill.
While the supply lasts I expect to be busy.
The trick is to marinate the washed and sliced strawbs in Balsamic Vinegar...
And dry them to semi-crisp.
Mine are sold as 'Oddberries' grown in Beewah : 'no one's perfect'. $3 for 500 grams. You'd get a similar supply and price at the Caboolture Mkts next Sunday.
At present, I dry pawpaw, tomato, Dragon fruit and now, strawberries. I also dry field mushrooms sometimes when they are in supply, like now.They are my preferred mushie of the major commercial varieties. Better than Swiss Browns.
