Is there anyone who doesn’t like Strawberries? Whether you eat them right off the vine in your own garden, or thawed from your freezer as a fruit for dinner, or in a recipe for a summertime dessert – strawberries are a really tasty fruit. They are a good source of fiber, Vitamin C and folate. Look for North Carolina strawberries in April, May and June. Berries from Florida and California may not be quite as good, but are available most of the year. Choose berries that are bright red color, firm and shiny. Wash just before using.
