Strawberries

Strawberries and strawberry treats will be on the menu at the annual Haldeman Mansion Strawberry Festival Sunday, June 3.

Of all the numerous sweet berries available in the summer time, strawberries reign supreme in Lancaster county. Sure, blackberries and blueberries are also delicious, but neither have the appeal in Lancaster that the strawberry does. Want to pick your own? There's at least half a dozen local farms in which to pick them. Want to visit a full-on festival dedicated exclusively to strawberries? Lancaster's got you - head to the Haldeman Mansion, Country Barn or others in June for strawberry-related foods, activities and contests. 

If you've already got your strawberries, congratulations! You're in for a treat - or multiple treats - with all the various ways the humble fruit can be used in recipes. We've compiled over a dozen below, from salsas to shortcakes.
