Featured Ingredient:  Strawberries

The best strawberries you’ll ever taste will come from a garden, because fully ripened strawberries have a rich, aromatic flavor unmatched by their supermarket counterparts. Eating them fresh is the best way to enjoy their ripe flavor and take in their nutrients. Each berry is full of antioxidants, vitamins, and dietary fiber. If de-stemmed, strawberries can be easily frozen for use in smoothies or for cooking during out-of-season months. As a tip, keep fresh strawberries in the refrigerator and only wash them just before use. Savoring the melt-in-your-mouth juiciness of freshly picked strawberries is but one reason to grow your own. Learn how to grow your own strawberries here!
