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.
