I just went strawberry picking on Monday to Prellwitz Produce in Ripon. The strawberries are bright red, huge and juicy this year because of all the rain we have been receiving. I wanted to share with you a picture of one of the four flats that I picked this year. Because we are prime picking season, I thought I would share with you a strawberry recipe that I served this last week to the Miss Wisconsin board along with a a few other goodies that you will see in the upcoming weeks.
Balsamic Berry Baguettes
I baguette loaf sliced about 1″ thickness. drizzle with olive oil and bake at 400 degrees for 5 min. Set aside.
Toss sliced strawberries with 1/4 C sugar and drizzled balsamic. Go based your taste. Set aside.
Mix 4 oz. cream cheese, 1/4 C powdered sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla together. Spread cream cheese mixture on baguette. Top with strawberry topping.
