It’s summer here in Indiana! To celebrate, we made our favorite summertime treat and brought our video camera along to show you!
With our recent focus on fresh herbs, we wanted to share with you this lovely way to use mint, along with that signal that summer has arrived – strawberries! We picked up some fresh local strawberries from the Broad Ripple Farmer’s Market this weekend for the occasion.
It’s become a summertime tradition for us – hope you enjoy it too! (Plus, you get to practice your chiffonade.)
