Nothing could be a more typical, totally American, dessert than Strawberry Shortcake. Plus what could taste better during your local strawberry season? There’s nothing that says “Hello Summer” quite like eating a juicy vine-ripened strawberry that has been ripened to perfection in the early summer sunshine. Strawberries serve more than just fulfilling the sweet tooth. It is packed with hordes of health benefits, making a nutritious fruit for mind and body. Did you know? Strawberry shortcake parties became popular in the United States around 1850, as a celebration of the coming of summer.
My family would not be happy if we did not have this strawberry dessert during our local strawberry season. So, either go pick some fresh local strawberries or buy some from your local market and make this delicious dessert for your family and friends. This is the way my mother used to make Strawberry Shortcake, and this is the way I and my daughters still make it. So good and yummy!
