Strawberry picking, followed a couple of weeks later by raspberry picking, is one of my favourite family traditions.
We have lots of wild fruit here in Scotland, but to stock up on basketfuls of delicious soft fruit, nothing beats a good Pick Your Own fruit farm. We have tracked one down – half an hour from us, but the drive is through beautiful countryside, and it’s well worth the trip.
This is a great afternoon out for all the family. If any fruit survive the drive home, strawberries are obviously delicious with sugar and cream, but they make a great sorbet too.
