Local strawberries are currently a gorgeous ruby-red color that seem to stare me down whenever I stop in the Viroqua Food Co-op.  When these strawberries found their way into my shopping cart today, I knew they were destined for pie. They’re baked in a lightly sweetened lemony custard surrounded by a buttery pie crust – just one of many ways to celebrate the strawberry of summer.
