The only thing better than red-ripe Washington strawberries are Norwegian strawberries. It must be the combination of clean mountain air and long summer days - but these are some of the sweetest most intense berries I have ever had.
The season is a little longer here too - there have been stands selling Norsk Jordbaer for the last 3 weeks of so. I usually miss strawberry season back home, but thankfully my mom makes enough jam to share with us.
Now - if only the price was a little more reasonable. The strawberries are good, but at $9 a box I have only allowed myself to enjoy them once in awhile.
