Summer is finally here which means that berries are back in season! On a hot summer day, there are few things better and simpler to enjoy than a handful of ruby red strawberries and fresh, homemade whipped cream. This dessert will always remind me of the first time I picked strawberries in Germany a couple of years ago. I was so amazed that one could just walk over to the local strawberry field if you were in the mood to make a berry tart. The simple pleasure of proudly hauling back my loot to my friend’s house to be eaten in her backyard garden with fresh cream is a memory I’ll always savor.
