Hi Simona - I just stopped off at a fresh strawberry stand yesterday. Who could resist them?
I believe you on your aprium cobbler, even without proof :)


Simona, how cute...you recited cobbler with an Italiana accent...sounds wonderful and cobblers are an easy and diverse dessert procedure.

Susan from Food Blogga

We just bought apriums last week at the farmers' market. They were so tasty, we ate them all out of hand, so there were none left to bake with! Don't worry about the pics, I believe you. But if it makes you feel better, you could bake me one. ;)


Oh, yum. Actually the photo is quite good, and I can see the deliciousness of the berries.

As for what I do with strawberries: Recently I made a strawberry sauce for a cheesecake topped with strawberries. The sauce was just pureed berries with a little sugar and lemon juice. It made the cheesecake rather elegant. But of course my most usual thing to do with strawberries is to just pop them into my mouth, au naturel!


Molto interessante questa ricetta con le fragole Simona, da provare. Grazie! Un bacio e buon finesettimana.

Simona Carini

Thanks Lori Lynn. Irresistible, indeed.

I did, Peter. In fact, I originally pronounced it with an American accent, but it sounded strange next to "fragole" so I recorded it again.

Sure, Susan, I'll make you one: when are you visiting?

Hi Lisa. Fresh strawberries popped in your mouth are indeed great. Strawberry sauce is a nice accompaniment to cheesecake.

Prego, Francesca, buon fine settimana anche a te.


Apriums? I'd like to hear more about them. I like apricots and plums, but I don't think of them as a natural combination. Their textures are farily different, for example.

LOL! I know all about not being able to take a photo before the food is eaten. ;-) Glad you were finally able to take a photo. Looks and sounds delicious!


Simona Carini

Hi Peter. I am adding a note to the post to answer your question.

Thanks Paz.


Il tuo dolce con le fragole darà alla raccolta un tocco in più


Grazie Lenny e baci di rimando.

hello simona, this cobbler sounds very similar to what I'd call a crumble, which is what i did with the plums - the hibiscus flower was my friend's idea
