The Taste of Summer

‘Markjordbæret’ vil som intet annet utløse vakre sommerminner hos de aller fleste av oss. Antagelig fordi vi alle engang i vår ungdoms vår plukket viltvoksende og velsmakende markjordbær på strå . . .
Og siden sommeren i år synes å utebli i store deler av landet, så gir jeg her mitt lille bidrag for å minne dere om at sommeren faktisk er her – bare litt mindre synlig enn vanlig.

Wild growing strawberries would like nothing else trigger beautiful summer memories in the vast majority of us. Probably because we all sometime in our early youth picked sprawling and tasty wild strawberries on a straw. . .
And since the summer seems to have left large parts of our country this year, let this be my humble contribution to bring into mind!🙂

  1. At last…maybe summer is on the way. We have several Wild Strawberry plants in the garden (they were self sown.. probably by birds). This year we have a lovely harvest, all very small the size of a pea but very sweet like a sugar cube dissolving in the mouth. Far better than the cultivated plants we have.

      And the taste is all together different, David. Like I commented (in Norwegian): I think this is a taste deep within us? Something we have evolved to like from childrenhood when we were picking wild strawberries on a straw? Her in Norway a jam producer have gone to lenghts to recreate this taste artificially and is making good money selling jam with the taste of wild strawberries. But, of course, they are not harvesting wild growing strawberries
      to make it!

    Ja man for vann i munnen av ett slikt bilde og gode sommer minner når man tenker på de gangene man har stoppet i veikanten og smakt på de små søte bærene!

      Ja, det er noe der! Noe som ligger dypt begravet i barnesinnet, men som plutselig stiger mot overflaten ved lukt/smak fra ville markjordbær! (Hvorfor tror du Nora har investeret millioner i å lage en syntetisk smak av markjordbær?) De flyr jo ikke rundt og plukker markjordbær?!!!
