Spring and summer in the mountains of western North Carolina are filled with non-stop activity, from hiking and biking adventures to backyard barbecues & family reunions. Rain or shine, the siren song of the outdoors is simply irresistible. What about when you want to slow down a little and savor the simple pleasures of the season? Nothing packs all the flavor and brightness of a sunny afternoon quite like juicy berries fresh from the vine. One bite immediately takes me back to my childhood, trotting along behind my grandmother as she picked berries and I held the bucket. Today I’m sharing two favorite family recipes featuring local strawberries, one sweet and the other savory. Hope these inspire new family memories in your kitchen!
