June brings sunshine and warm weather, and with it seasonal fruit. This month Richard has made several strawberry pies. He doesn’t buy pre-made pie shells or commercial strawberry glaze, though. He cleans and cuts fresh strawberries and makes everything from scratch. He has found that using vegetable oil in place of shortening makes the best tasting crust. For the filling he simply uses water, sugar, cornstarch and a few tablespoons of strawberry Jell-O. His recipes must have been successful, because they were quickly consumed when he shared them with his Primrose friends. There is nothing like the taste of homemade treats!
We are all looking forward to Richard sharing more of his kitchen creations with us!
