Pick Strawberries Day

Strawberries are one of the first fruits of the season - it's Spring! - and are rich in Vitamin B and C and contain potassium, iron and fiber. To find a place locally to go and pick your own strawberries, go to

Strawberry Facts:

1 dry pint = 2 cups sliced

Strawberries contain 85-90 percent water.

Aroma, rather than color or size, is the best indication of flavor.

To bring out the full flavor of strawberries, place hulled and sliced berries in a bowl and sprinkle with granulated white sugar. Let the berries and sugar macerate at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. *These are great on top of ice cream, angel food cake, or straight out of the bowl.
