The closer we get to summer, the closer we get to the Quebec berry season! Every year, juicy red strawberries are sprouting in the fields by mid-June. Then, in early July, come raspberries and blueberries, which follow in mid-July.

There are so many recipes to be made with our Quebec strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. And, let’s face it, they’re even better when we’ve picked ourselves these tasty little fruits😊!

Our fields of Sainte Brigitte des Saults and Saint Cyrille de Wendover are ready to welcome you! Drop by the Les Cultures de chez nous Facebook page to learn about berry availability and pick-your-own schedules.

Well, no more chit-chat; you’ll have to look forward to our selection of recipes 😉. Make way for festive recipes and desserts with strawberries, raspberries or blueberries!

Tiramisu, the Italian-inspired pleasure

Ah, tiramisu! We love this traditional Italian dessert. We gave you an excellent recipe for this fabulous coffee-flavoured dessert in our article on 9 Italian recipes for Italian-style eating (in French). In today’s article, we offer 3 versions of tiramisu featuring local strawberries, raspberries or blueberries.

Strawberry Tiramisu

In this tiramisu recipe, the beautiful red colour of the strawberries stands out perfectly alongside the white of the mascarpone mixture and the pinkish hue of the cookies.

Blueberry Tiramisu (in French)

For this tiramisu recipe, almost any combination of berries is possible. Of course, we love a blueberry-only version, but why deprive yourself of such delicious Quebec berries? We invite you to try the recipe with strawberries, raspberries and blueberries simultaneously!

In addition to 3 recipes for panna cotta with strawberries, raspberries or blueberries, you’ll have had a little Italian lesson 😉. Prego or “you’re welcome!” if you prefer 😊.
