I love cooking with fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables!  Fresh fruits are juicier, while veggies are crisper, plus the flavors surpass expectation as you bite into a fresh piece of produce.  Luckily Florida Farmers make it so easy for everyone to eat fresh produce year around!  Within a 5-mile radiance, there are over a dozen farmers markets held on various days of the week, Plus, my local grocery stores are always well stocked with products featuring the Fresh From Florida logo.

How to make this Simple Fresh From Florida Strawberry Shortcake

First cut up all the strawberries in a medium size bowl, then stir in the water and sugar.  Let the strawberries sit for about an hour.  I usually do this before dinner, and then everything is ready to go once our meal is done.

While the strawberries sit, the juices from the fresh berries mix with the water and sugar to create a strawberry flavored juice that soaks into the cake.
