Hello, Georgia strawberry season! Our local season begins in late April, and while we dream about Strawberry Fields Forever, reality is Georgia pickings are ripe until just shy of July 4. U-pick-um, farmers market and grocery berry buyers will find a bevy of strawberry-laden recipes on our board. Greet morning with banana-oat muffins, super easy chia seed jam and coconut protein smoothies. For lunch or dinner, find strawberry spinach salad, balsamic chicken and cilantro-lime grilled chicken with strawberry salsa. Happy hour calls for pineapple mojitos, Moscow mules and lava flow piña coladas. Icebox cake, no-bake cheesecake bites, homemade frozen yogurt and easy ice cream are cool anytime. Lastly, stretch the season by oven drying berries or making fruit leather…if you can resist instant gratification.
