In June we can find an abundance of wild strawberries in our fields.

They are tiny but packed with flavor and they make the best strawberry muffins.

Tiny strawberries

Something about the tiny size and the burst of strawberry flavor just enhances the taste of the muffins. My husband has a real fondness for these muffins and each year he will diligently spend an hour or more searching and picking these tiny little berries.wild strawberries In exchange I use them to bake up a batch of his favorite Wild Strawberry Spice Muffins.

We each enjoyed a few and then I froze the rest to enjoy later this year.

The strawberries are short lived and if you don’t go right out and pick them the birds will eat them up.

This recipe would be wonderful with blueberries or even regular strawberries but I use it each year to make our delicious Wild Strawberry Spice Muffins!

Those little strawberries are so cute! I would love to go pick strawberries for my own baking…in Texas we don’t get much of an opportunity for that. This recipe looks so delicious! I will have to use it soon. Love your website too, I am going to browse around for a bit! Stopping by from Create it Thursday 🙂 Have a great Sunday!!

Oh I love this! I’d forgotten about these little strawberries. We use to eat them when we were little and you reminded me of a nearby patch that I saw. Am totally sending the kids out tomorrow to pick them!

Thank you for sharing at the #HomeMattersParty! Looking forward to seeing you back next week.

Jane, Picking those tiny strawberries may be tedious but the reward is delicious muffins!!

That’s it. We’re making muffins tomorrow. The strawberry season at the farm that supplies our produce is just about over, but there’s an abundance of blueberries and raspberries! Our blackberry bushes are getting ready, too. Muffins for everyone!

These look so delicious. We don’t have wild strawberries in our area…but we do have wild blackberries. I remember picking them so my mom would make blackberry dumpling.
