Strawberry dippers create a whole new meaning to the humble Strawberry. This succulent, fragrant fruit is as beautiful as it is flavourful.
Traditionally, part of the strawberry’s appeal is that its short, six-week season, from early June until mid-August, coincides with the brief, long-awaited British summer.
To enjoy strawberries at their fragrant, juicy and flavourful best it’s worth holding out for the British season – if you want to eat them super-ripe, pick-your-own is best.
Look for plump, shiny, tender berries, with a good, bright colour and a sweet aroma, preferably with their leafy green calyx and stalk still attached. Avoid mushy or mouldy berries.
