This week the season for local strawberries gets properly underway with some delicious Pagham strawberries.  They are picked ripe, and are juicy and full of flavour, with a 400g punnet costing £2.99.

Strawberries really do thrive in the sunshine, and should be picked as ripe as possible to ensure maximum sweetness and flavour.  Amazingly, they are supposed to have health benefits with strawberry consumption associated with lower rates of hypertension, inflammation, cancer, and death from cardiovascular diseases.  However, the primary and most obvious benefit is that eating ripe local Strawberries makes you happy.  Especially with cream.

Gavin makes a truly spectacular strawberry pie that is available from the deli by the slice.

So come and grab some Pagham local strawberries and keep everyone happy.
