Norfolk grown summer fruits
Everyone’s favourite treat, delicious summer fruits are at their peak. Strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, currants and blackberries are supplied each year by one of our absolute favourite suppliers, Sharrington Strawberries, who farm soft fruits in Sharrington near Holt. The flavour and quality is truly remarkable. Fruits reach us at the peak of ripeness from about twenty minutes away from our Walsingham shop.
The gooseberry season is so short, that you need to grab them while you can. Delicious poached (or you can bake with sugar in the oven) and mashed into a fool with whipped cream or Greek yoghourt.
Luckily nowadays we have a lovely long season to enjoy strawberries. Have you tried them as a fresh tasting salad with torn up mint and feta?
For a taste of Italy, season your dessert strawberries with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, a tiny grind of black pepper, and top with a scoop of Lakenham Creamery ‘Norfolk County’ rich vanilla ice cream. Perfetto!
You can buy Sharrington Norfolk strawberries from our online shop.
