Strawberry Season at Springridge
It's finally here, the sweetest time of the year!
...but it won't last long
For over 30 years, we've been growing delicious strawberries and this year Farmer Tom has been hard at work to ensure it's one of our best crops ever!
Nothing beats fresh, local berries, which is why we take great pride in producing the best tasting strawberries. Here at the farm our strawberries are harvested daily so that you get the freshest berries ready for you to take home and enjoy.
Our strawberries are conveniently available in 1.5L, 3L baskets or by the 6L flat. We always advise calling ahead for our daily strawberry availability.
Strawberries are the feature in our scratch bakery as we prepare mouth-watering seasonal treats with our very own berries. Stop by our cafe to enjoy strawberry muffins, strawberry streusel pies & tarts and our signature strawberry custard pies & tarts - a true Canadian tradition!
Strawberry Trifle Recipe
We’ve always loved a decadent and old-fashioned English trifle, layered with soft custard and gently whipped cream, but in a nod to simplicity we’ve updated one of our favourite desserts and made it much, much lighter with vanilla-scented greek yogurt instead. This easy trifle has all kinds of flavour and couldn’t be simpler to put together. We make individual servings in large red-wine glasses because we think that’s festive. Feel free to make one large layered trifle in your favourite large glass bowl or trifle dish.
1 pound cake (shop bought is perfect)
1 jar Springridge Strawberry Jam
1 ½ cups sliced strawberries
1 ½ cups plain greek yogurt (0%)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract or paste
4 (or more) fresh whole strawberries, for garnish
Slice the pound cake crosswise into ½ inch slices, set aside. In a small bowl, stir vanilla into greek yogurt, set aside.
Start with a layer of pound cake in the bottom of each of four large red wine glasses. You will likely need to cut the slices of pound cake into smaller shapes in order to create this layer – don’t worry, the finished product will look great. Next, add a thin layer (approx 1/8 inch) of Strawberry Jam). Then add a layer of strawberries, and then a layer of vanilla-flavoured yogurt (between ¼ and ½ inch thick). Repeat layers until glasses are full, aiming to finish with the yogurt layer.
Garnish with a whole fresh strawberry and refrigerate until ready to serve!
We are open daily from 9am-5pm, see you soon!
