Nothing welcomes summer like strawberries ripening in the garden. Ripe, plump berries picked from the vine are the sweetest when they are still warm and enjoyed straight from the garden.
I still remember helping my Grandmother pick berries from her huge beds. I thought we would be picking berries all day. At least I got to have a snack along the way. When we were done picking then came the task of removing the stems. Finally they were ready to make jam. Some of the nicer berries would be saved out to have for dessert. Grandma always went for taste first and would pour some evaporated milk on the berries. Wow, that was a treat!
