For posterity and record keeping, I’m making a blog post with each Chocolate of the Month as the month ends (or, in this case, a year later.).
The very first chocolate of the month, one year ago this month! It’s been wonderful, how did I ever live without this fun challenge?
And now, on this beautiful summer day, how nice to remember that very first chocolate. The June 2010 chocolate was a real beauty: Strawberry-Almond Creams. Glorious rich almond cream with bright, beautiful, local organic strawberries folded in, encased in a thin bittersweet chocolate shell. Literally farm fresh.
My mouth is watering thinking about these little dudes. I came across a few tablespoons of the almond-strawberry filling in the freezer recently and I just ate it straight up with a spoon. Delicious.
Pete Taliaferro grew the strawberries, and oh my, they were perfect.
Oh, the Facebook photo album with glorious photos of the almond-strawberry creams is here, check it out! There are a million photos, and they’re super fun.
This one might have to be a seasonal special every year…
