The strawberries are starting to ripen up. We have 4 different varieties and all are delicious. Check our current pricing in our online store. Below is our Homemade Strawberry Rhubarb Shortcake recipe using rhubarb shortcake instead of sponge cake. Do a search for fresh strawberries near me to find a local farm that will allow you to pick your own strawberries or will deliver like we do. Strawberries allowed to ripen on the vine are infinitely better tasting and juicier than any you will find in the stores. And they make much better strawberry shortcake.
Super Easy Rhubarb Shortcake Recipe:
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups sliced fresh rhubarb
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup honey
1/2 cup organic butter, melted
1 cup sour milk (milk plus 1 Tbsp vinegar to sour it.)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Measure milk in liquid measuring cup, then add all the rest of the liquid ingredients, and mix.
