Return of the strawberry

baked strawberry cheesecakeWith the arrest of a 50 year old woman earlier this month in relation to the September strawberry tampering debacle, we can finally rest easy. No longer do we need to live in fear of hidden needles in our groceries, leaving us free to enjoy the summer harvest in peace. As we head into the summer months it’s a great time to to go strawberry picking and enjoy the freshest produce, sweetened by the effort gone into the picking. For those who can’t get away for a day, there are plenty of ways to enjoy frozen strawberries as well, like in this baked strawberry cheesecake.
