June in New England is all about strawberries. With dozens of orchards offering pick-your-own and towns from Connecticut to Maine celebrating strawberry festivals, it’s the unofficial queen of the start of summer.

If you don’t want to pick your own, stop by your local farm stand and pick up a quart like I did for $6 at Rosaly’s Farmstand in Peterborough, NH.

Strawberries are so juicy they are sometimes disastrous in baked goods because they give off too much liquid. I placed the diced berries between two paper towels and blotted them for a half-hour to soak up some of the excess moisture.

Then it was on to the batter!

Fresh out of the oven they smelled like cinnamon and warm strawberry goodness.

Berry perfection.

Warm and juicy, I felt these strawberry muffins needed nothing else, but you could spread a little cream cheese or butter on top if you were feeling adventurous.

Happy strawberry season!

Want more ideas for what to do with your fresh strawberries? Why not make homemade strawberry preserves, a batch of fresh strawberry shortcakes with whipped cream, or use them to sweeten your lemonade into strawberry lemonade?
