Strawberry Love!

Written by Cheryl Tay on . Posted in Cheryl Tay Blog | Blog Post of Cheryl Tay

Earlier this year, I got the chance to go fresh strawberry picking!



At the farm I went to, strawberries are grown only during the winter, with vegetables grown at all other times of the year.


Given only half hour within a confined area of strawberries, I had to select my strawberries carefully – picking the biggest, reddest and juiciest to dip into the fresh cream that was provided.


Sweet and flavourful, the strawberries melted once in your hands. To avoid red-stained fingers, spot, pluck, dip and eat in one swift action.


Step 1: With limited time on your hands, be quick to spot the strawberries that you want.



Step 2: Make sure you choose a huge one! See this one that’s almost as big as my palm…



Step 3: Pluck the strawberry out fast with one swift action. Holding onto it for too long will cause it to melt and turn soft in your hands.



Step 4 (not compulsory): Pose for a photo with the strawberry that you successfully picked. Don’t need to do this for all though, you’ll end up spending too much time taking photos instead of plucking strawberries.



Step 5: Immerse into the strawberry as you gently bite into it, feeling its juice spill over your tongue and fill up your entire mouth with its sweet liquid.



Step 6: Enjoy each and every strawberry with sheer joy and immense delight!
