SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – California is the nation’s leading producer of strawberries. In 2013 alone, more than 2.3 billion pounds of strawberries were harvested in the state, which amounts to 88 percent of the country’s total fresh and frozen strawberries.
The season stretches throughout the year, up the coast from San Diego to the Monterey Bay. The normal peak season is from April-June. With that in mind, KCBS Food and Wine Editor Narsai David has a strawberry dessert topping recipe.
