Pie

D & I went berry-picking, and brought home an infinite number of strawberries.  I think that Mark Bittman is right that strawberries are best just eaten raw with some kind of cream, but nevertheless when you have an infinite number of them you have to do something with them.  I made a strawberry-ginger pie from the Four and Twenty Blackbirds pie book.

(Their recipe calls for wild ginger, which they get specially flown in from Vermont or something; I rolled my eyes and made it with regular ginger.)  It was good (I mean, it was a fruit pie) but not amazing — probably if I did it again, I’d go a bit lighter on both the ginger and the allspice.
