It's strawberry season in Georgia! I have been anxiously awaiting the opening announcement from the local strawberry farm. I got the email at 9:00 Monday morning and by 10:00, I was in the field with empty buckets and my camera.
Rows and rows of gorgeous green plants dotted with bright red berries - what a great way to start the week.
The juicy, ruby colored berries were plentiful.
I filled both of my buckets with the sweet fruit in about 20 minutes.
So what's a girl to do with all of these fresh strawberries? Add chocolate of course.
You only need 2 things for really great chocolate covered strawberries - exceptional chocolate and exceptional strawberries. (Check and check)
I washed my berries and let them dry on paper towels. I find that the chocolate dries much smoother when working with room temperature fruit.
I melted the chocolate in the microwave and then I dipped.
