I don't know why but strawberries in Italy, well at least here in Amandola, are truly delicious! It's very odd, but when we lived in Australia I could take or leave them - the big ones were woody and tasteless and the little ones just tasteless. Here is a very different story! Our strawberry patch is only small but there are enough strawberries there each morning to add to the guests' fresh fruit salad. If I don't eat them first, of course! Next market day, I'll be buying lots of strawberries to make jam.
