|Local Strawberries in August.|
We bought the most beautiful strawberries at Sobeys and when we were at Masstown Market I had bought homemade shortcake biscuits which I had frozen until today when we made strawberry shortcake.

After slicing the strawberries, I added just a bit of sugar and let them sit for about an hour. I didn't use much sugar because the strawberries were very sweet.

I spread the biscuits halves with butter and then added the sliced strawberries.
Strawberry shortcake always calls for whipped cream----nothing but homemade whipped cream. After whipping the cream, I add a bit of vanilla and just a tad of sugar. We don't like our shortcake to be super sweet.

I saved a few strawberries to garnish each serving. The result was five strawberry shortcakes for the five of us at lunch today. YUMMY!!!!!

What a treat to have two strawberry seasons this year.
