A small, perfectly ripe strawberry picked straight from the plant is one of life’s great treats. No matter where they live, people boast that their berries are the sweetest and the juiciest. But wonderful strawberries grow in lots of places, and their bounty lasts . . . well, maybe not forever, but depending on where you live, the window is wide.

Plan a trip to a local strawberry festival or U-Pick field, and make a pie or cobbler with your gleanings.
