Nectar of the gods: Alpine strawberries

This year, we've got a very special treat in the garden: the five Alpine strawberry plants have begun producing. And these tiny bright red beauties are a sheer taste revelation, quite a different sort of fruit to the normal strawberry(which I love too!)
The taste is perfumed, so sweet it's almost like a fondant candy, with a hint of vanilla fudge in the strawberry. The texture inside is creamy, and outside the seeds are crunchy. And they look fabulous. A true wonder, and worth celebrating!
